The tax season is in full swing until May 1st.

The Member of Parliament for Gaspésie-les Îles and Minister of National Revenue, Diane Lebouthillier, reminds us that it is essential to file your income tax return in order to be entitled to various deductions and benefits.

New this year, the federal government is proposing a simplified deduction for people in remote areas who must travel by air.

For the first time, the Canada Dental Allowance for persons under 12 years of age will be included on the tax return.

The Canada Revenue Agency is also continuing its web shift, having integrated a calculator into the « My Account » platform to facilitate payment arrangements.

Diane Lebouthillier challenged late filers who have not filed their tax returns in the past few years to comply, reminding them that the agency is willing to be accommodating in such circumstances.

The Minister of National Revenue also indicated that the CRA is aware of the inflationary context that weighs on taxpayers’ wallets and wants to be flexible in making arrangements for the payment of amounts owing, which are established on a case-by-case basis.

The number of agents in the call centers and the hours of operation of the offices have been increased.
