Learn about tax filing and benefits

There are many important reasons to stay up to date on filing your taxes. You might be eligible for a refund, which will give you a boost of income at tax time! Also, tax filing is often a necessary step to accessing income benefit programs from the federal, provincial, and municipal governments. These benefit programs are often paid throughout the year, which will give another income boost to plan for.

The worksheets and tips in this section will help you learn more about tax filing, how to read your notice of assessment, and more information about benefits that may be relevant for your situation.
