Since we started preparing tax returns for our clients, we have noticed that many of you do not know exactly which documents, slips, and receipts we bring.
And more importantly, many of you don’t know what to bring to save more money, or worse, get more from the government.
This is why we have prepared this checklist that helps you think in an organized way about what you need.
You can download the PDF version here. Or if you prefer, you can see it below, directly on our website.
