Tax Time Tips Prepare Now, Save Later!


Yes, it is time to start thinking about your taxes again! Following are some tips to help you to minimize your family tax burden:

  1. 1. Be organized; keeping your receipts in a safe place will ensure you get all of the deductions and credits you are entitled to. A small lost receipt for Daycare, medical, children’s fitness etc. could cost you tax dollars
  2. 2. Contribute to RRSP’s; every dollar you invest could save you up to $40 in income tax. Additionally, interest earned while in the RRSP is tax-deferred
