Filing a return is the key to getting your goods and services tax/harmonized sales tax (GST/HST) credit and the Canada child tax benefit (CCTB), among others. Whether you are completing your tax return by yourself, or getting help from someone else, the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) and its community partners are here to help you.
