TAX PREPARATION

Tax Preparation is the process of preparing and filing of personal or corporate tax returns.

Tax Preparation focuses on:

  1. Collection of information slips such as T4's, T3's and T5's.

  2. Preparation of schedules.

  3. Review with the client and signoff.

  4. E-file of tax return to CRA.

Every person “resident” in Canada at any time in the year is required to file and pay taxes. A resident is primarily defined as a person living in Canada for 183 days or more, a member of the Canadian Forces, or a servant of Canada or a Province. There are more definitions regarding resident, so if you have any questions regarding your specific situation, you should contact a CPA.


The “person” definition includes any individual, corporation, partnership, or separate legal entity. There are exceptions, so if you have any questions regarding your specific situation, you should contact a CPA.
The two most used forms to file taxes are the T1 for individuals who have income from an office or employment, and the T2 for Corporations. All corporations must file a T2 return for every taxation year, regardless of whether tax is payable. Registered charities are exempt from filing a T2.
