Income Tax Time Comes Every Year; if you are Self Employed are you prepared?

Income Tax time comes every year but are you ready for it? For many small and mid size business owners in Canada income tax time can be a big dread. You try to prepare by having all your receipts in order and contributing to an RRSP in hopes to reduce the monies you owe. When surprises hit are you ready for them?

Income taxes can be paid in two ways.

Canadian Revenue Agency has options for paying your taxes:

  1. Instalments (usually quarterly payments)
  2. Lump Sum

If you find yourself short on paying your income tax what do you do?

  • Borrow from a LOC
  • Take out a 2nd mortgage
  • Take out a Loan
  • Use the Equity in your home
  • Pay bills on credit cards so you can pay your taxes
  • Do nothing and pay them next year
