Video: Preparing your income tax and benefit return

In this video series, we will provide general information on preparing and filing an income tax and benefit return.

What’s new – your 2011 income tax and benefit return

You may be able to take advantage of new incentives or changes to existing credits, deductions, benefits, and services when filing your 2011 return.

The Canada Revenue Agency does not request personal information by email

Did you receive an email from the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) asking you for personal information or to click on a link to get your refund?

The CRA does not ask for personal information of any kind by email. Even though these emails can look real, they do not come from the CRA. They are “phishing” scams that contain special coding or downloadable forms that are designed to steal your personal or financial information.
