They are done. My 2019 income taxes are on the way to the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). It is the earliest I have completed my income taxes. Last year, I dropped them off at the CRA on April 30th, the deadline. This year the government moved the deadline from April 30th to June 1st. I completed my taxes by March 31st.
Why so early?
The government owes me a billion dollars. The sooner I get my taxes in, then sooner I get my billion dollars.
Why so much?
I am a poor creative type. Some would say poor in talent. Others would say I receive poor payments for my talent. I agree with those who say the latter.
Throughout the year, I made sure to pay too much income tax on the money I earned. Paying too much income tax is a type of savings plan with the government. I get to withdraw my savings at tax time.
It is tax time. I hope the government sends me my money before the world ends. How will I spend my billion dollars if the ending of the world causes businesses and stores to close?
