Re: Extension of Tax Filing Deadline
Thank you for your leadership throughout the crisis of the last year. Canadians are appreciative of our strong leadership as a government.
I have heard from some constituents regarding the need to extend the tax filing deadline given the stay-at-home order being enforced in Ontario. The Ontario Ministry of Labour has indicated they will be inspecting accounting firms – hampering the ability for tax professionals to help their clients with tax filing.
I am writing today to support their requests for an extension to the deadline.
I have included correspondence from Ritchie, Shortt & Tully LLP, a Chartered Professional Accountant firm in my community of Whitby who wrote to me expressing their concerns.
