Are you starting to think about submitting your 2021 tax return? Making mistakes on your tax return can cost you time and money. Here are five common errors you’ll want to avoid:

1. Messing Up on the Basics
It may seem like common sense, but it’s surprisingly easy to make mistakes on basic information while doing your taxes. Doublecheck that your name and the names of your dependents are spelled correctly and that all Social Security numbers are correct.
Tax Tips

2. Inaccurately Reporting Your Income
Carefully enter all wages, dividends, bank interest and other income you received. Also, don’t forget that unemployment benefits are taxable income that need to be reported as well.
Tax Tips Fraser Valley Lifestyle

3. Not Checking for Typos
It’s easy to enter the wrong number, leave out a digit or misplace a comma. For example, you contributed $4,500 to your Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) but you accidentally entered $5,400 as the deduction on your return. These kinds of mistakes can cheat you out of your deduction amount.
Tax Return

4. Entering the Wrong Bank Account Number
If you’re getting a refund, you’ll likely get it much faster if you choose the direct deposit option. Avoid any holdups by making sure you give the CRA the correct account number and routing number.Tax Return

5. Filing a Paper Return
You’re free to file your taxes as you see fit, but keep in mind that filing electronically reduces your chances of making an error and will also help expedite your potential refund.

TAX TIP: Keep a copy of your signed return, along with proof of filing.

Here’s a look at what’s happening in the market right now and what to keep an eye on over the coming months.

More Modest Home Price Gains
Prospective homebuyers may enjoy slightly favorable conditions. Inventory will likely remain tight, but prices — although still expected to rise — will be more tempered.1

Increased Desire for Separation
As people spent more time at home, the desire for a dedicated working space grew. More homeowners appreciate the benefits of closed-off, distraction-proof floor plans which may lead to a redesigning of open concept homes.

Still a Great Market for Sellers
While there’s been a slight increase in new listings, look for 2022 to still be a sellers’ market. More balanced conditions have recently emerged in some prairie markets, including Regina, Saskatoon, and Edmonton.2

Urbanization Trend Poised to Slow Down
If remote work continues to become a permanent option, some homeowners, especially those working from home in small spaces, might decide to look outside the city for more square footage and green space.3

Are you considering buying or selling this year? Give me a call! I’ll help you through every step of the process.
