We file basic tax returns for students, seniors, individuals, and families. We also file more complex tax returns such as rental income, capital gains, vacation properties or investments.

Estate Tax Returns

When an individual passes away, the legal representative that is listed on the Will as the Executor or Estate Administrator is required to file a final income tax return(s) to Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). The final return provides the legal representative the amount the deceased owes as the final income tax return. As this is a debt, income tax is paid by the estate first known as “settling the estate”. This action is required before any inheritance is distributed. Once CRA is satisfied with the deceased tax return(s), a notice of assessment is mailed to the legal representative. A clearance certificate can then be acquired in order to distribute property or any funds from the estate. Banka & Company, CPA’s knowledge and expertise will help you through the entire process.

Trust Tax Return

Trust Tax returns are required for various purposes such as testamentary, inter vivos trusts and disability trusts.  Each type of trust has many variables and different tax implications.  A trust is a fiduciary relationship between two or more persons whereby the trustee holds legal ownership and control of property for the benefit of the beneficiary of the trust.

At Banka & Company, CPA, we can assist you with setting up bookkeeping to keep your trust records or do your bookkeeping for you and file your annual trust tax returns.
