Registered Charity Information Return

Under the Income Tax Act, every registered charity must file an information return each year. The return must be filed no later than six months after the end of the registered charity’s fiscal period. You should receive a package from CRA shortly after your year end containing the return and basic information sheet.
While this return can be quite confusing, we have created a document that will give our churches tips on completeing the return question by question. As well, please refer to the guide CRA offers for completing the return for more details on some questions.
