About this session:
In module one of this three-part tax season series, an official from the Ontario Ministry of Finance will explain the reasons why we should all file a tax return (even if we don’t owe tax), and why each of us should personally know as much as we can about the tax-filing process – even if you have someone do your taxes for you. Find out what many people say or question about the tax system, and what the answers are.
1. Discover the tax knowledge gap and its causes
2. Understand the tax system
3. Learn how to file a tax return and what information to include
