Easy steps to get your Canadian Tax Return with Canadataxback

  • You decide whether you want to use the taxback service

Calculation Request form

The request form is encrypted by an SSL certificate, which means that data can be transmitted securely.

Upon receipt of the request form, Canadataxback will send you a free and non-binding estimate of the tax calculation. The amount of the tax calculation is based on the information in the request form and is not yet a guarantee of a tax refund.

Depending on the tax situation, further questions must be answered outside the request form, and additional receipts and proofs may be necessary. Communication takes place via the e-mail address specified in the request form.

Fees

  • The service fee for filing the tax return is 5% of the calculated tax refund amount.
  • The minimum service fee is $10 per tax return.
  • The service fee for a tax return for taxes owing is $10 per tax return.
  • The maximum service fee is $60 per tax return, no matter how high the tax refund is.

Payment

Canadataxback accepts PayPal as payment. PayPal is considered one of the safest payment methods.

If you do not have a PayPal account, no worries, payments can be made with all major credit cards through PayPal without the need of an account.

An invoice will be sent to the e-mail address specified in the request form. All customers are responsible for paying the invoice before receiving the secured PDF tax return.

Tax return

If you opt for the Canadian tax return,

  • A copy of your passport or identity card will be required as proof of your identity.
  • Canadataxback will prepare the tax returns to the best of their knowledge and belief and according to the current tax rules.
  • You will pay the agreed fee.
  • You automatically agree to these Terms and Conditions.

Proof of identity will be uploaded upon request via a provided, secured form.

When Canadataxback prepares the Canadian tax return for you, Canadataxback assumes that

  • You have not yet filed a tax return in Canada for the tax year.
  • You will provide your personal information and all types of income (both from Canada and outside Canada) completely and truthfully.

Canadataxback reserves the right to reject the tax return service if there is a suspicion of intentional violation of the Canadian Tax Act.

The Canada Revenue Agency  has the final decision on the exact tax calculation. They might charge interest for late filing or request repayment of benefits or use the tax refund for unpaid taxes or benefits you were not entitled to.

You will receive the completed tax return by e-mail as a PDF, which is protected with a password that only you and Canadataxback knows.

Disclaimer

If the Canada Revenue Agency calculates a different tax amount due to missing or incorrect information, Canadataxback accepts no responsibility if the “Notice of Assessment” is modified by the Canada Revenue Agency .

Missing/incorrect information includes, for example:

  • omitting a Canadian T4 slip
  • not reporting additional income for the tax year*
  • not reporting foreign income for the tax year*

Refunds

The services offered on www.canada-taxback.de are delivered electronically. With the delivery of the completed documents (PDF) the service is completed. This means that a refund of the fees is then no longer possible. A change of opinion on the preparation of the tax return after completion of the service will not result in a refund of the fees. A partial refund of the invoice will only be made if the CRA (Canada Revenue Agency) calculates a lower tax refund. In this case, the issued invoice will be corrected and the difference will be refunded. However, this does not apply
  • if the taxpayer has failed to report income in the request form and the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) had to recalculate the taxes as a result.
  • if the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) uses all or part of the tax refund to offset an amount owing.

*Canadian Tax Year is January 1 – December 31
