Corporation income tax returns (T2’s) are due no later than six months after the business’ year-end. A corporation’s year-end varies, but the most common year-end is December 31.
Example: If a business has a December 31 year end for its 2022 fiscal year, its filing deadline is June 30, 2023.
The partnership information return is due by March 31, 2023 if throughout the fiscal period, all partners are individuals.
If, throughout the fiscal period, all partners are corporations, including end members of tiered partnership, the partnership information return is due 5 months after the end of the partnership’s fiscal period.
In all other cases, the partnership return is due the earlier of:
- March 31, 2023 and
- the day that is five months after the fiscal period the partnership ended.
For a T3 return (Form T3 RET, T3 Trust Income Tax and Information Return) your filing due date depends on the trust’s tax year-end.
You have to file a T3 return, the related T3 slips, NR4 slips, and T3 and NR4 summaries no later than 90 days after the trust’s tax year-end. You should also pay any balance owing no later than 90 days after that year-end.
Example: For a Trust with a calendar year-end (December 31, 2022), the due date is March 31, 2023.
