Did You Know the CRA Has a YouTube Account?

Indeed it does! Our friends at the CRA are working to help folks like me who don’t like reading much, by creating some very helpful videos to explain the various rules and tricks to do your Income Tax Returns. Are they really explanatory and useful? I think they are, they don’t go into gory details, but they are still quite useful, and they introduce the topics quite well, and make you aware of things that you might have forgotten about, or maybe didn’t even know.

I subscribe to their YouTube channel, so when they upload new videos (and they seem to be doing that often this early tax season) you get told about them as well.

Did you want to know about the Child Tax Credit for Sports? There is a video for that:

But wait a minute isn’t there a Children’s Art Tax Credit? There is a video for that too!

There are a bunch of other useful videos, for folks who learn better visually.

At least subscribe to their channel, that way you might even be tweek’ed by the topics they are uploading videos about.

      Well, there are no cats playing and looking cute, but there are some useful videos.

    Really? Did you actually watch the video?
    I’m so sorry your personal experience with the child fitness/activity credit has been so bad.

    I wonder why they don’t show the other side of the singe person working hard to make a living and the CRA reaching in to their pocket and taking them money and giving it to sports teams who then get the idea that they can now raise prices because parents have free money, thus blocking low income children from sports teams because they don’t get credits anyway.

    Hooray for unintended consequences.
