Every Canadian citizen and resident is required by law to file tax returns. Both individuals and businesses are accountable for the timely filing of tax returns and payment of taxes. However, it can be challenging for consumers to comprehend how much tax they must pay owing to the complexity of the Canadian tax system.

What is a T1 return? 

Canadians submit their income taxes for each calendar year using the T1 general form, generally referred to as the income tax and benefit return. In addition to your income (total, net, and taxable), deductions, non-refundable credits, and amount owed (or refund, if you're lucky), this form includes a summary of all the taxes you pay. 

The CRA must receive your T1 by April 30, along with any taxes payable. The filing date for independent contractors and their partners is June 15, while the payment deadline remains April 30. In addition, your T1 is used to compute the Canada Child Benefit, apply for refundable tax credits for the goods and services tax (GST) and the harmonized sales tax (HST), and more.
