As you start preparing your 2019 return, we want to ensure you’re aware of important upcoming deadlines and dates, so you have everything you need to file your return with minimal hassle.
Important deadlines for 2020
RRSP contribution deadline
The final date for your RRSP contributions to be eligible for the 2019 tax year.
Tax filing deadline (individuals)
The deadline to file your 2019 personal income tax return is postponed to June 1, 2020, unless you're self‑employed. However, the Canada Revenue Agency encourages individuals who expect to receive benefits under the GST Credit or the Canada Child Benefit not to delay the filing of their tax return to ensure their entitlements for the 2020-21 benefit year are properly determined.
Tax filing deadline (self-employed persons)
The deadline to file your 2019 taxes is on or before June 15 if you're self‑employed.
Tax payment deadline (individuals including the self-employed)
For all individuals, including the self-employed, the deadline for paying taxes that become owing on or after March 18, 2020 and before September 2020 is deferred until September 1, 2020. This includes taxes owing for the 2019 taxation year and installment payments for 2020.

T3s for non-Investors’ Group holdings
We are moving all IG Wealth Management accounts to a new digital platform to enable us to expand our service offering and online access to you for your IG accounts.
As a result, you will have received two statements confirming the following: a final closing-out statement from your old account, and a new statement with your new account number and up-todate balance at year-end. It’s important that you keep both of these statements, which will help with your tax reporting, as explained below.
If you currently hold our iProfile Private Portfolios or Series U funds, the advisory fee for your nonregistered accounts may be deductible in arriving at taxable income.
As mentioned above, it is recommended that you keep both statements, as together they will provide the total amount of advisory fees that you may be able to deduct for tax purposes. Please consult your tax advisor for more information.
Depending on the activity within your account(s) last year, you may need to report on your new and old account. Therefore, you may receive one or more tax receipts.
These are not duplicate receipts and may look different from past receipts depending on the account for which they are issued. Please ensure you report all issued tax receipts on your income tax.
CAPITAL GAINS TAX SLIP (T5008)
If you made a transaction on both your old and new account in 2019 that triggered a capital gains (or loss), you will receive a separate T5008 slip for each in the mail in February, consistent with the timing of other tax slips. In the past, this may have been included on your statement. Please use this slip when preparing your income tax return.
