Life events can have an impact on your taxes
If your marital status changes, it’s important to let the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) know as soon as possible
- Change your marital status – If your marital status changes during the year and you are entitled to any Canada child tax benefit (CCTB) payments, GST/HST credit, or working income tax benefit (WITB) advance payments, you must let us know by the end of the month after the month of your divorce. In the case of separation, do not tell us until you have been separated for more than 90 consecutive days. You can change your marital status online using My Account, by sending a completed form RC 65, Marital Status change, or by calling 1-800-387-1193.
- Are you making or receiving support payments? For information about the tax implications, go to Support payments.
