With the RRSP deadline just around the corner I’m sure your personal banker or advisor is reminding you to make your contributions. Just make sure you know your limits and options to avoid over contribution penalties. All your contribution till March 1st can be used to reduce your income from 2012. Happy RRSPing!
February is a busy month, besides RRSP deadline it also marks the beginning of tax season, I recommend TurboTax if you want to do your own taxes. Check out our tax centre for more tax tips and discounts on tax software.
