Boost your Refund! Tax Preparation Strategies for Families

Think that the taxes that you paid in 2011 are gone forever? Think again.

Filing your tax return is your opportunity to describe your personal circumstances to CRA and to reclaim some of the taxes that were withheld at source.

In many situations, you can claim tax credits and deductions to boost your refund. These personal situations can include: raising or educating your children, donating to charity, paying for unreimbursed medical treatments and many others.

If any of these personal situations sound familiar to you then be sure to attend this 90-minute seminar that will de-mystify the tax preparation process and present ways in which you can optimize tax credits and tax deductions for the upcoming tax deadline. Topics to be discussed will include:

  • a relatively-painless short course on the Canadian income-tax system
  • “it is better to pay than to receive”
  • taking best advantage of your family’s tax credits; child care expense deductions; and RESP options
  • optimizing RRSP and TFSA strategies
