CRA - Are you self-employed?

CRA - Are you self-employed?

Did you know?

As a self-employed individual, you have until midnight on June15, 2012 to file your 2011 income tax and benefit return. You must pay any balance owing for 2011 on or before April30, 2012, regardless of your filing date.

Important facts

  • If you earned self-employment income from a business you operate yourself or with a partner, you should report it on yourgeneral income tax and benefit return. For more information, go to www.cra.gc.ca/selfemployed.

  • Keep adequate records if you are carrying on a business or engaged in a commercial activity in Canada. The records have to provide enough detail to determine your tax obligations and entitlements and have to be supported by original documents.

  • If you receive income that has no tax withheld or does not have enough tax withheld for more than one year, you may have to pay tax by instalments. This can happen if you receive rental, investment, or self-employment income, certain pension payments, or income from more than one job. For more information, go to www.cra.gc.ca/instalments.
