However this year April 30th falls on a Sunday, Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) will consider your return filed on time and your payment received on time if it is received by Monday, May 1, 2017.

Always ensure that you file on time – if you do not CRA will charge penalties for late filing and interest on the outstanding balance.
