Taxes

Managing day to day finances properly takes time, thought, and planning. Many Canadians carry a certain amount of debt as part of their overall financial picture. But with proper financial planning, you’ll be able to determine how much money you’ll need for monthly expenditures, future savings, and be able to manage debt effectively. Part of your financial planning should include paying taxes - which are financial contributions required yearly by the government. The amount of tax that a person must pay varies based on the type of tax (income, property, etc.) Financial experts have differing views on how much money you should keep in savings, how and where to invest your money, and how best to manage your monthly and yearly costs. Do you have questions about your current financial tax requirements? Would you like guidance or information from a financial expert for yourself, a friend or loved one? Are you looking for resources within your community to help you file your taxes? Kinjunxion is here to help with sources of support and information.
