The CRA is currently extending the tax refund date for the 2019 tax return and company 2019 or 2020 or the trust repayment as well as installment payments from September 1, 2020, to September 30, 2020. Previously extended deadlines for individuals, companies, and the income tax return remain unchanged. The CRA encourages everyone to file their income tax return as soon as possible, even if the payment deadlines are extended. However, given the difficult circumstances facing Canadians, the CRA does not impose late penalties for a person to return to a company in 2019 or 2019 or 2020, or a trust repayment will be recorded by the end of September 2020.
The extension of the registration date for the income tax return described below also applies to Forms T106 and T1135 and any forms, forms, and programs that must be returned with returns.
The CRA is also open to paying existing tax liabilities related to existing income tax returns from April 1, 2020, to September 30, 2020, and from April 1, 2020, to June 30, 2020, for Goods and Services Tax (GST / HST). While this does not override existing tax liabilities, penalties, and interest previously assessed in the taxpayer account prior to this period, it ensures that a taxpayer’s existing tax debt is levied through duties. Interest does not grow at this difficult time.
Some taxpayers may have received an assessment warning that the payment deadline is April 30, 2020, or September 1, 2020, which is now incorrect.
On May 15, it was announced that eligible Canadians currently receiving GST / HST and/or Child Receipt from Canada (CCB) credits would continue to receive these payments until the end of September 2020. Scheduled for August and September will not be cut.
If we are unable to assess your return in 2019 by early September 2020, your estimated benefits and/or credits will be discontinued in October 2020 and you will have to repay the estimated amount issued to you from July 2020.
By extending the federal repayment and installments deadline, the CRA also extends the repayment deadlines and installments of provincial/territorial companies. Note that the CRA does not administer Quebec and Alberta taxes.
Penalties and interest will not be paid if payments are made with long deadlines on September 30, 2020. This includes penalties for delays until the settlement of payments by September 30, 2020. This applies to income tax and related election returns, determinations, and returns, such as Form T1135, which must be returned or recorded on the same day. Penalties and interest reductions are considered on a case-by-case basis for income tax balances not listed above.
The CRA also covers the payment of existing tax liabilities related to the tax return on the personal financial income of the company and the trust company from April 1, 2020, to September 30, 2020, and from April 1, 2020, to June 30, 2020, for GST / HST.
