We have significantly cut back on our face-face meeting through moving more meetings online. When possible, we ask that you send all of your documents to us electronically, rather than deliver paper copies to us. Depending on your level of comfort, you can share your documents by email, or an online file storage (One Drive, Google Drive, Dropbox, etc).
When a face-to-face meeting is required, you are welcome to make an appointment with our online scheduling app, or by checking in with Allison or Jeff. We can meet at our home office but will keep the meeting to our foyer whenever possible.
CRA begins accepting electronically filed returns on February 22, 2021. We are back to the normal reporting deadline of April 30, 2021 but have heard discussion of a potential extension of the filing deadline as we saw last year.
We will be emailing to you our personal tax return engagement letter for 2021. Please review that letter, answer the questions on page 2, and return a signed copy to us with your tax records.
We are pleased to still not be increasing our basic fees for personal tax returns. Actually, since we began in 2011, we have not raised the basic price for our personal tax returns.
Hot topics for 2020 personal tax returns:
