Business   -> Self-employed tax deadline

Self-Employed Person - Tax Return Deadline

Self-employed people and their spouses or common-law partners have until June 15th each year to file their tax returns.  However, any tax owing must still be paid by April 30th.  The income tax returns may be filed, if desired, using the Netfile service provided by Canada Revenue Agency (CRA).  There are several CRA-approved software packages which may be used to Netfile a return.  For more information on the Netfile process, visit the CRA Netfile - Overview.

The Income Tax Act specifies the due dates above as April 30th and June 15th.  The Interpretation Act s. 26 indicates that when the due date falls on a holiday, then the due date will be considered to be the next day that is not a holiday.  The Interpretation Act s. 35(1) defines "holiday" by listing the applicable statutory holidays, and indicates that Sunday is considered a holiday.  According to the Interpretation Act, Saturday is not considered a holiday.  However, the CRA information on Important Dates for Individuals indicates that "When a due date falls on a Saturday, a Sunday, or a public holiday, we consider your payment to be paid on time or your return to be filed on time, if we receive it or if it is postmarked on the next business day."
