    CRA doesn't start processing returns till after February 15 . And even the NETFILE doesn't open until after February 15.

    So doesn't matter when you mail in your tax return or when you are ready to NETFILE online with a tax software, you will have to wait till after February 15.

    Generally paper returns, which are mailed in take 4-6 weeks to be processed. And NETFILED online returns 8-10 business days. i.e If everything is in order, there are no mistakes, audits etc.

    Tax software should be out soon.

    Lot of FREE options available, so no need to pay for them.

    Usually better to use 2 Free ones and make sure both the numbers tally. Sometimes the software makes a mistake too.

    Last year UFILE & Turbo Tax both were giving me different refunds ! They were off by at least a couple of hundred dollars

    $200 difference? Wow.
    I'll jot down to pursue the paper returns around mid-February.

    Good time to remind public transit users that they can claim monthly pass tax credits for Jan-June 2017 only (PRESTO users have to have registered their cards in order to access reports to print off for tax purposes). Not certain how student postsecondary bus passes work but likely there can be a claim for the six months if the colleges/university student associations offer 8-month (claim Jan-Apr)or 12-month (Jan-June; found out a local university is now providing 12 month passes and I missed that announcement) transit passes as part of the student fees.

    I recall in December that newspapers were reporting that CRA was not denying diabetes expense claims but advocates for the tax credits referenced a CRA memo that seemed to indicate that claims were not going to be eligible for 2017. If this credit applies to your situation, I suggest you submit your claim. https://www.thestar.com/news/canada/...-suggests.html

    From the CRA site-nurse practitioners can certify the disability tax credit certificate. https://www.canada.ca/en/revenue-age...rtificate.html

    BTW, the CRA site redirection to the Canada.ca is only temporary. It'd have been lovely if Canada.ca/cra was used rather than revenue-agency.html as the address.
    This is the new website for all matters tax-related (CRA):

    In case you did not know, the Auditor-General has noticed that calls to the CRA did not always get answered. Plan for a long wait just in case you stay on the line.

    Most tax slips should start arriving next month

    NETFILE should open on February 15, 2018 . Usually in 10 days or so you will get your refund if you file online.

    Lot of FREE software available, so take advantage of that.

    Remind the post-secondary family & friends to put into their smartphones or planners that they have to print off their tuition slips from their school's e-portals at the end of February. And they can check earlier just before they have Reading Week and go wherever they plan to be that week and give you an update if the slips might be in.
