Shameless Friend Website Whoring - Canadian Tax Time!

Hey Y'all.

You know how this blog-circle-of-life, I scratch your  scrotum  back you scratch mine, I'll  whore help you out, you help me now and again?

Okay, well this is slightly different. I have a friend (who is much classier than I and likely doesn't approve of the words 'scrotum' or 'whore' used in connection to their website) has created an easy online tool that helps you figure out where to throw your Canadian money before you file your income tax to the CRA (Canada Revenue Agency).

Here is my quick plug for the FREE Canadian Tax Tool Site Here [edit: site is now defunct... he stopped paying for the url]. Check it out if you so desire. It works for any province and will help you make some choices for filing your taxes. I make no money if you click it, and the website owner only makes money if you click on ads. So, basically, you benefit, and my friend got to learn a boatload of HTML coding. You're welcome.

All that TFSA (tax free saving account) versus the ole RRSP (Registered Retirement Savings Plan) stuff is there. I won't pretend to understand it, because I am a mere humour blogger/simpleton who only ever hopes not to have to PAY taxes, but receive a tax REFUND. All I know is that there is a cut off for RRSP contributions, so get your shizz together, Canadians!

It's no H&R Block, but it's free, so, shush.

A screen shot, and no, I didn't get to edit the text first. I'll tell ya where you can put your money....

I've been back from vacation for only two days and already a lot of the funny is starting to escape my feeble mind. I should work on posts, but am trying to work on maintaining my sanity first (did you know that is full time work, for a girl like me?).

Pin It Now!


  1. nothing wrong with a little pimping

  2. Sanity (and taxes) is no fun. The link is appreciated, and now that you have done that please get back to work before sanity affects all of us!


  3. i'm in the us... great tips for the canadians out there!

  4. Hee hee. I'm not in Canada nor the U.S. at the moment! ^.^

    It's pretty cool that your friend was able to create such a tool as well. That takes mucho skillz.

  5. *Yandie, Goddess of Pickles - i 2nd, 3rd and 4th that opinion.

    *becca - thanks girl! It's shameless. I asked my friend "do you feel dirty? Want some lipstick and hooker boots? Because you have officially been.whored.out". I got no reply.

    *V-Tom - yes, yes, new post tonight. Part 1 of probably 5. Or so.

    *AmberLaShell - is a 401k the same thing as our registered retirement savings plan? It's so confusing. I hate filing my taxes and just opened up a TFSA. No idea what I am doing.

    *Barb the French Bean - my friend will enjoy that feedback fo sho! Do you still have to file taxes if you are abroad? I bet that is even MORE confusing.

    Okay, my brain hurts now.


I get far too excited when new comments come in here...
