CRA 2015 tax filing deadline extended to May 5, 2015

Perfect timing. 这是好消息,也是坏消息。cra1

Rejoice, procrastinators. This year’s deadline to file income tax returns has been pushed back by five days because of a bungled notice issued last week the Canada Revenue Agency.

“Due to human error, an incorrect notification was sent around to tax preparers on Friday,” Rebecca Rogers, director of communications for Revenue Minister Kerry-Lynne Findlay, told the Globe and Mail.

As a result, Canadians who file their taxes before ‎May 5 will not face any penalty, she said.

The notice mistakenly stated that “All returns transmitted electronically up until 3:00 a.m., Eastern Time, Tuesday May 5, 2015, will be considered as filed on time.”

That date was in fact the deadline for electronic tax forms that need to be resubmitted after they are returned for correction.

By Monday, the CRA issued a new notice, to say that, as usual, returns were due at the latest at midnight, April 30.

“Please ignore the April 24th message related to this topic,” the CRA said in an online update.

However, because of the confusion already created, Ms. Findlay decided that there will be no penalties if taxes are filed before the incorrect date.

“Minister Findlay has made it clear that this incorrect information is unacceptable and therefore she has directed her officials to ensure no Canadians are penalized for the CRA’s error‎,” Ms. Rogers said.
