The CRA sent out the following email last week to tens of thousands of charities with filing deadlines of June 30th:
The deadline for filing your charity’s information return is fast approaching! It is due at the latest on June 30, 2018. If you have already sent your return, disregard this email.
The Income Tax Act requires that registered charities file a complete Form T3010, Registered Charity Information Return, and financial statements within six months of its fiscal period end. This requirement applies whether your charity was active or not during this fiscal year.
In the last two years, over 1,200 charities lost their registration status because they did not file their information return. If your charity’s return is not filed on time, its registration could also be revoked.
For more information about the information return and the filing obligations, go to cra.gc.ca/charities.
If your charity no longer wants to be registered, it must send a letter to the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) asking to revoke its registration. For more information, visit our website.
