Dear valued client,
As you may know, personal tax season is upon us. While the global COVID-19 pandemic has seen the Canada Revenue Agency relax some of its deadlines in the past, the April 30th , 2021 deadline to file personal tax returns remains firm as of now. We are sending this reminder to support our clients in filing their personal taxes on time.
We would also like to be of assistance in preparing your documents. Please see our website, via the link below, where a Personal Tax Organizer can assist you in ensuring all documents and information is collected prior to submitting them to our firm.
We anticipate a high volume of personal returns and encourage you to submit your documents as early as possible to avoid any delay in filing. You can email all pertinent documents to firstname.lastname@example.org, or deliver them in person to our Edmonton or Sherwood Park locations where our administration staff will be happy to assist you.
To further ensure that your tax season runs smoothly, our secure and confidential Credit Card Authorization form is available upon request, as well as an accompanying fact sheet to answer your questions.
Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact our offices. We look forward to seeing you soon.
