Let’s face it — this is not a fun, well-crafted, witty and spellchecked post reviewing some nice British-themed food, or a heartwarming story about a Successful Brit in Toronto.
It’s about TAX!
There, we said it. But you have to face it. So we made it a little easier and partnered up with Taxback.com to make the task not such a pain. And as it’s a sponsored post, they’re also offering you $20 off your filing fee. We’ll repeat that fact at the end too just for more impact.
So, let’s get filing those taxes!
Tax season has come and gone as quickly as the snow this year (well, maybe not in the east), but nonetheless, the deadline is approaching for us all to file our tax returns. If you’ve worked in Canada in 2014, you’re obliged to file a tax return.
Unfortunately, the Canadian tax system does not mirror that of the UK’s, where tax is looked after for us. In Canada, we are entrusted to file our own tax returns each year.
It’s not all bad news however, because if you paid tax in 2014, you’re more than likely due a tax refund. Taxback.com’s average refund for international workers in Canada is $904, which is not to be sniffed at! What would you do with $904?
So, where do you begin? Luckily, Brits In Toronto has partnered with Taxback.com to guide you all in the right direction. Taxback.com specializes in filing tax returns for international workers, and look after the whole process for you.
They will even send your refund to your UK bank account if that’s what you want.
Taxback.com can send you a free no-obligation tax refund estimate in three days, and all they need from you is to fill out the following registration forms online:
Mention Brits In Toronto in your e-mail and you’ll get a $20 discount on your filing fee.
Might as well, right? You have to file them somehow. You could then invest that extra $20 in a tax-free savings account, which will create a tax wormhole and implode the fabric of time and space in a singularity.
And who said tax wasn’t exciting?!
