In order to provide greater flexibility to Canadians who may be experiencing hardships during the COVID-19 outbreak, the Canada Revenue Agency will defer the filing due date for the 2019 tax returns of individuals, including certain trusts:  
* for individuals (other than trusts), the return filing due date will be deferred until June 1, 2020 (the Agency encourages individuals who expect to receive benefits under the GSTC or the Canada Child Benefit not to delay the filing of their return to ensure their entitlements for the 2020-21 benefit year are properly determined)  
* for trusts having a taxation year ending on December 31, 2019, the return filing due date will be deferred until May 1, 2020  
 
The Canada Revenue Agency will allow all taxpayers to defer, until after August 31, 2020, the payment of any income tax amounts that become owing on or after March 18, 2020 and before September 2020  
* this relief would apply to tax balances due, as well as instalments, under Part I of the Income Tax Act  
* no interest or penalties will accumulate on these amounts during this period  
 
In order to reduce the necessity for taxpayers and tax preparers to meet in person during this difficult time, and to reduce administrative burden, effective immediately the Canada Revenue Agency will recognize electronic signatures as having met the signature requirements of the Income Tax Act, as a temporary administrative measure  
* this provision applies to authorization forms T183 or T183CORP
