Your first step will be to collect all your tax documents. Depending on your situation, these may include your T4 form from your employer, your RRSP contribution statement(s), documentation from any investments, tax receipts for charitable contributions, transit passes, medical expense receipts, childcare receipts, children’s activity receipts, and moving expenses – just to name a few.
With April 30 right around the corner, there’s no time like the present to start getting your paperwork organized !
If you choose to hire someone, be sure to choose an established company or an individual with proper credentials and references. You’re paying for their expertise and trusting them with your personal information, so you want to be sure that they are reliable, trustworthy and up-to-date on the latest CRA requirements.
