Did you know that if you are a resident of Canada for all or part of a tax year, January 1 to December 31, you need to complete an income and benefit return? There are benefits and credits that you can only get if you file your taxes. It is important to file a tax return every year and to report all income earned both inside and outside of Canada. Income tax returns must be filed on time to avoid any interruptions to your benefits. Newcomer fact sheets that explain how to file a tax return can be found at Settlement.Org. The information is available in English, French and Arabic.
