As you may have heard, the CRA employees have voted in favor of a strike. At CPBCanada.org, we will be closely monitoring the situation and will be providing updates on our website.
Please be assured that in the event of a strike, CPBCanada.org will continue to be available to provide you with reliable information for filing your taxes or business.
Despite the strike, the CRA has stated it currently has no plans to extend the general tax filing deadline, which falls on May 1, 2023. (The normal April 30 deadline falls on a Sunday, so we get an extra day this year.) For taxpayers who have self-employment income or who have a spouse or common-law partner with self-employment income, the general filing deadline is June 15, 2023, but any tax owing is still due by May 1, 2023.
So do not take the chance that you assume that the deadline will be extended.
