Behind On Your Taxes?

Penalties for late income tax in Canada can cause significant tax debts with the Canada Revenue Agency, negatively impacting the future of your personal and business finances. Our team at Tax Mechanic are experienced with filing your most complex tax situations negotiating with the CRA on your behalf to bring your account up to date with zero to minimal penalty charges.

Late-Filing Penalties For 2017 to 2019.

If the CRA charged a late-filing penalty for 2017, 2018, or 2019 and requested a formal demand for a return, your late-filing penalty for 2020 will be 10% of your balance owing. You will be charged an additional 2% for each full month you file after the due date, to a maximum of 20 months. Late filing penalties still apply even if you are eligible to get interest relief if you received COVID-19 benefits.
