June 15, 2022, is the deadline for self-employed individuals to file their 2021 income tax and benefit return. The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) wants to remind businesses that we are here to support you and your business in meeting your tax obligations.

The Liaison Officer Service 

The CRA offers free Liaison Officer services to owners of small businesses and self-employed individuals to help them understand their tax obligations.

It has also helped over 69,000 small business owners and self-employed individuals since the start of the program in 2014.
