Dear Clients:

The Covid-19 pandemic has created a truly unprecedented situation which affects us all. Our hearts go out to anyone who had been impacted by the virus. During this time, we want to reach out and update you on how we are approaching the situation at Vowles & Associates.

Like most organizations, we are doing our best to secure the health and well-being of our employees. In an effort to support our community and reduce the risk of spreading the COVID-19 virus, we are taking the following measures to keep our staff safe and you, our clients safe:

Our office hours have been reduced to 9 am to 2pm, Monday to Friday.
To maintain social distancing, there is a drop-off bin in our lobby to drop off your records. Your income tax information will be quarantined for up to 5 days before being signed in.
We encourage you to use our online portal located on our website to submit your income tax information to accelerate the processing of your income tax return. If you wish to set up your portal please email and we will send an invitation and instructions to you.
When your returns are ready, we will email or call you for signing.  With regards to payment, to limit contact with the debit/credit card machine, we would encourage everyone to pay by cheque or by Interac E-transfer to

Extended Income tax filing and payment dates

Thank you to all of the clients that have brought in their personal income tax information.

The filing deadline to file your 2019 personal income tax return has been extended to June 1, 2020 with your payment date being further extended to September 1, 2020. Due to our quarantine procedures, we need your tax information to come in sooner rather than later, even though the tax filing deadline has been extended to June 1, 2020.  For those that have not brought in their personal income tax information, we strongly request you bring your information to us no later than Friday May 8, 2020.

If we receive your return after May 8, 2020, we cannot guarantee that your return will be completed by the extended deadline of June 1, 2020.

We thank you for your co-operation and patience during this unprecedented time as we work together to meet your filing deadlines.
