Tax Deadline Nears as Canadians File Last-Minute

Tax Deadline Nears as Canadians File Last-Minute

Last-minute tax filers were streaming into the Winnipeg Tax Centre on Stapon Road at a steady pace Friday evening.

Despite the rain, Kevin Boyd (above) was still happy to collect income tax returns at the drive-thru. An average of seven to eight vehicles per minute were stopping by at 6 p.m., with the midnight deadline looming. Boyd says volumes were down from last year, and it wasn’t as busy as expected. More Canadians are filing electronically each year, according to the Canada Revenue Agency. The penalty for not filing on time if you owe money is 5 percent on the total amount. photos/Ted Grant
