April 30, is deadline day for those who haven’t filed their income taxes.
Joanne de Waal, with the CRA said if you haven’t filed yet you have until midnight April 30.
“If you end up not filing on time and you owe money, you could be subject to a late filing penalty,” she said.
“That’s also in addition to the interest we’re going to charge you daily until that balance is paid, so you really want to avoid that if possible,” de Waal added.
de Waal said 73 per-cent of refunds are done with direct deposit, which means most people have their refund money within eight days.
The average return this year is $1,162, as of Friday the CRA had already handed out over 11-million returns.
