Frequent Questions About Taxes
I am interested in your tax services. What are the next steps?
Can I book an appointment?
Yes! We offer tax appointments on a first-come, first-served basis each year. As we prepare tax returns for over 1000 people annually, we recommend booking in advance. Contact Lisa to book an appointment.
When will I receive my refund?
The CRA dictates the timeline for tax refunds. When you file online their goal is to send your refund within two weeks. They have an eight week goal when you file a paper return. Unfortunately we are not able to influence how fast you will receive your refund. You can log into your CRA account to confirm the status of your refund.
How do I get my tax slips to you?
Tax slips can be dropped off at our office during office hours. We can also arrange to recieve them via email.
How can I get bigger tax refund?
Tax refunds are a result of overpayment of taxes throughout the year. Ideally employers will take out the right amount of taxes so that you do not owe anything. RRSP contributions, charitable donations and certain expenses can be used for deductions and credits on your income tax. Visit the CRA’s website for a full list of options for personal taxes. Businesses also have options to help reduce the taxes that they owe.
How can I access my prior tax returns?
The CRA send out notices of assessments annually. Be sure to keep your documents for a minimum of 6 years. We also recommend setting up an online CRA account so that you have access to all of your previous assessments and slips.
