Tax Deadline Looms

Monday, May 4, 2015 @ 3:50 AM

Prince George, B.C. – An unexpected  extension  of the Federal Tax deadline  requires  income tax for  individuals to be filed by  no later than Midnight May 5th.

Normally, the deadline is April 30th, but  Canada Revenue Agency extended the deadline because of some information that  was provided to some tax payers “On April 24, the CRA issued a communication to some Canadians that referred to an incorrect filing deadline for 2014 income tax and benefit returns of May 5, 2015, rather than April 30, 2015” reads the short note fro CRA.

The CRA has taken full responsibility for the mistake,  and at the request of   the Minister in charge,  the deadline  was  extended to midnight tomorrow, May 5th.  Those who owe money to the government  who file before midnight May 5th,  will not be called upon to pay any interest or  face any penalties.
