Media Advisory - Not filing a tax return? These excuses don't work

    TORONTO, April 27 /CNW/ -

    -   They owe money and hope the Canada Revenue Agency won't notice if
        they don't file.

    -   They only had a small amount of income so don't think it's necessary
        but in fact, they could qualify for tax credits.

    -   They were out of the country on holiday at the end of the year and
        mistakenly believe that they were not a resident of a province on
        December 31.

    -   Taxpayers originally from the United States who think that only one
        spouse has to file since it is possible to file jointly in the U.S.

    -   Some people engaged in illegal activities don't understand that they
        are supposed to pay income tax on their illegal profits.

    -   They know that someone has a lien on their tax refund such as an
        unpaid student loan or unpaid support payments to ex-spouse.

    A local H&R Block tax professional can talk about excuses Canadians give
for not filing a tax return.
