FRIENDLY REMINDERS
 
Please remember to send us copies of:
  • Your Notice of Assessment - typically 4 pages mailed to you after completion of your 2017 tax return
  • For RDSP folks, the letter from CRA indicating the maximum grant dollars available for this year.  This letter was mailed earlier in the year.
Both of these items give us valuable information and is important for us to review, take note of and track on your behalf.       Thank you!
