Filing due dates for the 2023 tax return

If you file your taxes electronically by March 15, 2024, you should receive your next Canada Carbon Rebate (CCR) payment (formerly known as the Climate action incentive payment) on April 15, 2024. If you file after March 15, 2024, generally, you can expect to get your CCR payment 6-8 weeks after your tax return has been assessed.

For most people, the 2023 return has to be filed on or before April 30, 2024, and payment is due April 30, 2024.

Your payment is considered on time if it is received on the first business day after the due date. For more information, see Due dates and payment dates.

Deceased persons

If you are filing a return for a deceased person or their surviving spouse or common-law partner, the due date may be different. For more information, see Guide T4011, Preparing Returns for Deceased Persons.
