Staying Ahead: Navigating New Penalties on Overdue Taxes in 2024

In 2024, staying financially vigilant is more crucial than ever due to the stricter penalties imposed by the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) for overdue taxes.

Understanding these new penalties is vital for effective financial planning and avoiding unnecessary charges.

The CRA’s new structure dictates a 5% penalty on your 2022 balance owing, compounded by an additional 1% for each full month your return is late, up to 12 months. For those with a history of late filing in the past three years, the penalties are even steeper, starting at 10% of your balance owing and an added 2% for each month late, up to 20 months.

Filing on time is more important than ever, even if you can’t pay the entire balance immediately. Delaying can lead to significant financial repercussions. At Bowie Financial, we emphasize proactive planning and timely action to mitigate these risks.

For comprehensive details on these penalties, it is recommended to review the CRA’s Late-filing penalty page. Our team is dedicated to assisting you in navigating these changes, ensuring your financial health remains robust and resilient.
