Filing your tax return before April 30 is the best way to make sure you get your benefits and payments on time. It’s just one of the ways we are supporting Ontario families, while improving schools, hospitals, public transit, roads, bridges and more, in your community.

These benefits help maintain fair and dependable support for Ontario families and provide greater opportunities for all.”
