2017 is in full swing! Most people are back from holidays (if they were fortunate to take them), projects are moving again, recruiters are calling, and tax season is approaching. As you start to look at your 2016 books and consider working on your taxes, you may be realizing that you could have done a better job at staying organized in that area (and hopefully you are setting a goal to keep up-to-date in 2017). Vice-versa, you could be super stress-free right now because you were well prepared at this time last year.
Regardless of your situation, a new year means a fresh start to get organized. We can’t help you with your 2016 taxes, but we can give you a boost for this year. The CRA created a mobile app that lets independent contractors create custom reminders and alerts for key CRA due dates related to instalment payments, returns, and remittances. Download the iOS, Android, or BlackBerry version, or check out all of CRA’s mobile apps here.
