Tax Filing Deadlines for Final Tax Returns
If you are the legal representative of a deceased person, you are in charge of ensuring their final tax return is submitted to the CRA.
- If the individual passed away between January 1 and October 31 of the tax year, their return is due May 2.
- If they passed away between November 1 and December 31, their return is due six months after the date of their death.
Again, if the deceased person or their spouse or common-law partner is self-employed, the CRA extends the due date to June 15, but it still begins assessing interest as of April 30.
