ACCOUNTING FOR BRAVERY
A heartfelt thank-you to all frontline healthcare workers for the courage and commitment you have shown since the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis. While we cannot be on the frontlines with you, Chartered Professional Accountants across Ontario want to do what we can to help.
Help with your Taxes
As a small token of our appreciation, CPAs across the province want to contribute their professional expertise to help prepare frontline healthcare workers’ 2019 taxes. In keeping with social distancing guidelines, there will be no face-to-face meetings – CPAs will receive all documentation electronically.
This program is available to nurses, paramedics, lab technicians, doctors, cleaners, and other healthcare staff on the frontline during COVID-19, who do not have an existing business relationship with a CPA. Because we want to help as many frontline workers as we can, the program will cover basic individual, spousal and dependent children’s tax returns. Please note the program does not include more complex tax returns, such as those involving self-employment income or employment expenses, business or rental income and expenses or foreign property (T1135).
To ensure all returns will be ready in time to the meet the June 1 filing deadline, the program will be accepting applications until May 15, 2020.
