File Your Taxes - Canadian Tax Software

The CRA maintains a list of certified tax filing software -- both free and pay-for filing software -- for completion of your tax filing.

Make sure you're not late! The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) indicates that generally speaking, your individual tax return for 2016 has to be filed on or before April 30, 2017. However, there are exceptions as well as an accounting for weekends and holidays. If you or your spouse were self-employed in 2016 (carried on a business, other than a business whose expenditures are primarily in connection with a tax shelter), your return for 2016 has to be filed on or before June 15, 2017. However, balances owing for 2016 must be paid on or before April 30, 2017.

Additionally, when the tax filing due date falls on a Saturday, a Sunday, or a public holiday (a public holiday recognized by the CRA), your return is considered on time if the CRA receives it (or it is postmarked) on the next business day. For the 2017 calendar year, April 30th does fall on a Sunday, thereby allowing extension to May 1, 2017. For more information, see the CRA page on Important dates for Individuals.
