Filing due dates for the 2014 tax return

Generally, your return for 2014 has to be filed on or before April 30, 2015.


If you don't file your return, your GST/HST credit (including any related provincial credit), Canada child tax benefit payments (including related provincial or territorial payments), and old age security benefit payments may be delayed.

Self-employed persons

If you or your spouse or common-law partner carried on a business in 2014 (other than a business whose expenditures are primarily in connection with a tax shelter), your return for 2014 has to be filed on or before June 15, 2015. However, if you have a balance owing for 2014, you have to pay it on or before April 30, 2015.

Deceased persons

If you are the legal representative (the executor, administrator, or liquidator) of the estate of an individual who died in 2014, you may have to file a return for 2014 for that individual. For more information about your filing requirements and options, and to know what documents are required, see Guide T4011, Preparing Returns for Deceased Persons, and Information Sheet RC4111, What to do following a death. The due date for the final return will depend on the date of death and whether or not the deceased or his or her spouse or common-law partner carried on a business in 2014.


If you received income in 2014 for a person who died in 2013 or earlier, do not file an individual return for 2014 for that income on behalf of that person. Instead, you may have to file a T3 Trust Income Tax and Information Return for the estate.

Exception to the due date of your return
When the due date falls on a Saturday, a Sunday, or a holiday recognized by the CRA, we consider your return to be filed on time if we receive it or it is postmarked on the next business day. For more information, see Important dates for 2015 (Individuals).
