USEFUL RESOURCES

AUTHORIZATION FORM

For new client drop-offs only.  No need to fill out for an appointment or if you're a prior client.

This is a standard form used by tax preparers, and must be printed out and signed.  It authorizes Empanda Tax Services to represent you to CRA for the purpose of preparing your tax return.  If you are not able to print the form at home, there are copies at our drop-off mail slot.  Please sign one and include it with your other tax documents.

We must have this authorization in order to accurately prepare your return.

If you have CRA My Account set up, you can authorize us online and skip the form altogether.  After signing in to My Account, click on your profile and add an authorized representative, using our business number (716241005).

WHAT DOCUMENTS DO I NEED?

A checklist of documents.

If you're unsure what documents we'll need to prepare your taxes, take a look through this checklist to make sure you don't forget anything.

We don't have absolutely everything listed here, so if there's anything else you think you might need, just bring it in.

CANADA DENTAL BENEFIT

This is a benefit for people with children under 12 and no dental insurance. 

If you are doing your taxes with us, we'll help you figure out if you qualify and, if you do, apply for the Canada Dental Benefit for no extra charge. 

If your child had or will have an appointment for dental care any time from July 1, 2023 to June 31, 2024, let us know the dates and the name of the dentist or clinic.  And that's it!  Please bring the information to your appointment.  We'll figure out the rest for you.

If you want to try it out yourself, CRA has a pretty good walk-through of the process.  Check it out here.

CANADA DENTAL CARE PLAN

This is a benefit for seniors (eventually all age groups) without access to dental insurance.

The CDCP started being phased in during December 2023, beginning with seniors over 87 years of age.  Each month or so, a younger age group gets added to the plan, with coverage for all eligible Canadians starting in 2025.

When your age group becomes eligible for coverage you will get a letter in the mail with a personalized application code.  You can then phone the number on the letter or go to a Service Canada office to apply.

Starting in May, applications can be made online.
