Things to know about your TFSA information when logging in to CRA

At The Energy Credit Union, we prioritize your financial well-being and aim to provide you with the best possible service and support. Today, we want to shed light on an important aspect of your Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA) that requires your attention: compliance with the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) regulations.

While TFSAs offer an excellent opportunity for tax-free savings growth, it’s important to understand that the CRA may not always have the most up-to-date information regarding your contributions. This could be due to various reasons, including delays in reporting, processing errors, or the time of year at which you are viewing information on the CRA website.

Why does this matter to you? Because inaccuracies in reported contributions can lead to penalties and unnecessary stress during tax season. We want to ensure that your TFSA experience is seamless and worry-free, which is why we encourage you to stay informed and vigilant.

Here’s how you can help:

Review Your Statements: Take a moment to review your TFSA statements regularly. Ensure that the contributions reported align with your records. If you notice any discrepancies, don’t hesitate to reach out to us for clarification.

Timely Remittances: As your Credit Union, we are committed to meeting CRA deadlines for remittance submissions. When you are viewing your TFSA information, please be aware that not all submitted information may be displaying at that time. Depending on the length of time it takes for all accurate information to be uploaded on the CRA side of things, you may not have the most up-to-date information.

By working together, we can ensure that your TFSA journey is not only rewarding but also compliant with CRA regulations. Our team is here to support you every step of the way and address any questions or concerns you may have regarding your TFSA. Please call our offices at 416-238-5606 ext 0

Thank you for entrusting us with your financial needs. We look forward to continuing to serve you and helping you achieve your savings goals.
