Don’t Delay Filing Taxes

The extended tax deadline is approaching on Monday, and a national tax specialist is urging people not to delay.

Gerry Vittoratos of U-File says the deadline is June 1 for a reason.

He says many people think that just because they don’t have to pay anything until September 1 that it is not worth rushing to file.

Vittoratos says by not filing and waiting to get money, people are essentially giving the Canadian government an interest-free loan.

For those who owe money, he says they should still file for June 1, and then they have the whole summer to pay.
