Income tax Dates

  • MAR 31
    Final date for ratio option provisional tax applications.
  • APR 7
    End-of-year income tax and Working for Families bills are due if you have an extension of time to file your income tax return.
  • MAY 7
    Provisional tax payments are due if you have a March balance date and use the standard, estimation or ratio options.

The first dividend your company pays each tax year sets the credit to dividend ratio you must use for the rest of the year.

If you want to change your ratio during the year, your company must send us a completed Ratio change declaration - IR407 before you pay the dividend to your shareholders.
