Do I need to hire an accountant to do my taxes?

Rounding it up

  • There’s no getting around filing taxes if you live and work in Canada, but how you file your taxes is up to you.

  • You don’t need to hire an accountant to do your taxes if you have a simple financial situation and ample time. Plus, there are plenty of free resources if you’re on a tight budget.

  • If you own a business, have a complicated financial situation, or can’t handle doing your taxes on your own, it may make sense to hire a professional.

  • Hiring an accountant can save you time, energy, and money, and be well worth the cost in the end.
