Media Advisory - Why you should file a tax return

    TORONTO, March 26 /CNW/ -

    -  If you are expecting a tax refund, file a return. The money is yours
       and the government does not pay interest.

    -  If you are planning to carry forward the unused portion of your
       tuition or education amounts, you have to file a tax return.

    -  If you incurred a non-capital loss last year, file a return so you can
       apply it in other years.

    -  If you borrowed money from your RRSP through the Home Buyer's Plan or
       Lifelong Learning Plan and did not repay the entire amount, you need
       to file a return to include the balance in income.

    -  In some provinces, you can only qualify for certain benefits or
       credits if you have filed your return.

    A local H&R Block tax professional can talk about reasons to file a tax
return by the deadline.
