But never late is better!
The Canada Revenue Agency will charge a late-filing penalty that is 5% of your 2014 balance owing, plus 1% of your balance owing for each full month your return is late, to a maximum of 12 months.
If a late-filing penalty was charged on your return for 2011, 2012, or 2013 your late-filing penalty for 2014 may be 10% of your 2014 balance owing, plus 2% of your 2014 balance owing for each full month your return is late, to a maximum of 20 months.
If the filer is late 2 out of 3 years the penalty will increase to 20% plus the interest compounded daily.
Even if you are late, complete your tax return sooner than later to avoid the interest. It will just keep growing.
