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.

If you need to file an Annual imputation return - IR4J and an income tax return, use the Companies income tax return - IR4. This combines both returns.

What happens next

We’ll use your return to update your running balance for your imputation credit account.

It will be updated with the latest return’s income tax payments, transfers in, income tax disbursements and transfers out.

The running balance determines which income tax disbursement limitation rules will apply. 

If you file an imputation return with a credit or nil closing balance we will not post a transaction to your account.

Any imputation liabilities will be managed through your company’s income tax account.

You can also file your IR4J on paper.

Download and fill in the Annual imputation return - IR4J.
