Getting Prepared for the Tax Return Filing Deadlines
To get ready for your 2022 tax return filing, start gathering your documents that relate to any income you’ve earned and those relating to deductions you can claim. Consider how you want to file your return, whether it will be digital or paper.
Income to report includes COVID-19 benefits, self-employment income, foreign investment income, income from assets, or other earnings. Income from assets includes rental income but if you have any other business income coming in to your person, they should be identified on your report as well.
Some key documents regarding deductions include RRSP, PRPP, and RPP deductions. On top of that, documents regarding pension adjustments, annual union or professional dues, child care expenses, employment expenses, capital gains, disability tax credit amounts, student loan interest, tuition, education, and textbook amounts.
