T2 Corporate Tax Return

All corporations have to file a T2 Corporation tax return. Only registered charities throughout the year are exempt.

The return needs to be filed within six months of the end of each fiscal year. When the T2 filing deadline falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or statutory holiday, Canada Revenue Agency will consider the return filed on time if is delivered, mailed, or transmitted on the first business day after the filing deadline. If the T2 return is mailed by either first-class or an equivalent delivery service, Canada Revenue Agency will consider the date of the postmark when determining if the return was filed on time.

Penalties apply if the return is filed late. The penalty for filing late is 5% of the tax balance owing on the filing deadline, plus an additional 1% of the unpaid tax for each complete month that the return is late, up to a maximum of 12 months.
