Serving Vancouver Island
WHAT'S A SIMPLE
The short version is that most people have a simple tax situation. Unless you own a business with employees, have capital gains or own foreign property—if your after-tax income is less than $35,000 per year for individuals ($50,000 per year for families), or if you are in hardship—we can likely file your taxes for you for free. If you're unsure, the best thing to do is to send us a message.
WHAT DO YOU NEED
All we need from you is some basic personal information—things like your name, your Social Insurance Number (SIN) and a mailing address. We don't need your T4s or other tax forms. Also, we don't keep anything about you on file. We'll use your personal info once this year to file your taxes, and then we'll delete it—so you'll need to provide it again next year if we do your taxes.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET MY REFUND?
If the government owes you money, it can at least 4-6 weeks to receive your refund, and we can often file your taxes within 7 days once you give us your information (a bit longer during Feb-Apr.) Also, any info you give to us is strictly confidential and will only be shared with the CRA per our Tax-Preparer Agreement with you. For your security, your personal info is erased once we use it and we don't keep records.
