    Heads up! Don’t wait until the last minute to file your taxes. Self-employed individuals and their spouses or common-law partners have until June 15, 2016, to file their income tax and benefit returns. Any balance owing for 2015 must be paid by April 30, 2016. However, as this date is a Saturday, the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) will consider your payment to be made on time if the CRA receives your submission or it is postmarked by midnight on May 2, 2016. A late-filing penalty on amounts owing may apply to returns received after the June 15 deadline. www.cra.gc.ca/getready #SelfEmployed #Taxes
