Further Extension of Tax Return Filing Deadlines
To provide continued support to businesses dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic, a further two-month extension of tax return filing deadlines is being provided to August 20, 2020.
The provincial government announced on Monday that all tax returns, with the exception of tax returns required from inter-jurisdictional carriers, falling under the purview of the Revenue Administration Act and Regulations, which would otherwise be due March 20, 2020 to July 31, 2020, are now due August 20, 2020. The tax returns applicable to this extension include:
Health and Post-Secondary Education Tax
Insurance Companies Tax
Mining and Mineral Rights Tax
Tax on Insurance Premiums
For monthly filers, this means you will have the option to extend the filing and remittance of tax amounts for the February to June 2020 reporting periods to August 20, 2020.
