NEED-A-SOURCE: Tax Time Tips

Tarsem Basraon (TD Wealth) and Jenny Diplock (TD Canada Trust) available for interviews

TORONTO, March 28, 2017 /CNW/ - With the 2016 tax deadline just over a month away, taxes are top of mind for many Canadians. TD spokespeople are available to offer helpful tips this tax season for those who have already filed and are expecting a refund, or still need to file and are looking for tips.

Sources available for interview:

  • According to a recent TD survey, more than half (55 per cent) of Canadians expect to receive a tax refund this year. While it may be tempting to treat your tax refund as 'free money', it's important to remember that your refund can have a greater impact when used towards reaching your financial goals. Jenny Diplock, Associate Vice President, Personal Savings & Investing, TD Canada Trust, can speak to how Canadians can best maximize and aim to get the most value from their tax refund.
  • More than a quarter (28 per cent) of Canadians say the tax filing process is stressful, confusing or intimidating. But, with helpful tips, it doesn't have to be. Tarsem Basraon, Wealth Advisory Services, TD Wealth, can speak to new 2016 rules and considerations, common mistakes Canadians make when filing their taxes and the consequences of not filing taxes properly or on time.
