Important information regarding tax season 2021

We hope you and your families are staying well during these uncertain times. As we continue to navigate our present situation and the ongoing challenges posed by the pandemic, we must once again modify our approach to the upcoming tax season.

 

As things stand now there has been no extension provided for the April 30th tax deadline and, therefore, our aim is to ensure that we are able to meet this deadline for all of our clients while at the same time safe guarding you, your families and our staff. To ensure this we are once again providing an on-line document service to which you can securely upload your T1 documents. We strongly encourage that you consider this option as this is the best way to get your information to us. If you are interested in using this service, please reply to this email and an invitation will be sent to you. To facilitate things, please wait until you have the majority of your documentation before uploading.

 

If the above is not convenient we encourage you to email your T1 information. If you are emailing the information to us, please email in one bulk email as opposed to one slip at a time. If you would like to drop off your information, please leave it in the labelled document box inside the front door at 4 Glengrove. Please ensure that the documents are in a sealed envelope and clearly labelled with your name and the name of your KSK accountant. This box will be checked regularly by staff.

 

If you have any questions or wish to discuss your return, please contact your respective partner. Meetings will take place by telephone or virtually.

 

Please note we will be retaining original copies of the slips (if we are provided with them) and will only return the originals and paper copies of the returns, if you request them. If you do request a paper copy, one will be provided to you after the April 30th deadline.

 

It is imperative that you provide us with your T1 information as soon as it is complete in order to ensure we are able to meet the filing deadline.

 

Please do not come to the office to drop-off documents, if one of the following applies:

 

• If you are experiencing any COVID19 symptoms or are feeling unwell, please do not enter the office and consider one of the other options.

• If you have had close contact with someone who has tested positive or you yourself have been tested and are awaiting results.

• If you or anyone in your household has been advised to quarantine for 14 days or if you or a family member have travelled outside of Canada in the last 14 days.

 

Don’t forget your mask! If you have any questions with any of the information provided, please do not hesitate to contact us. Our ultimate aim is to meet the April 30th deadline while at the same time ensuring that everyone is healthy and safe!
