CGA-Canada Launches National Tax Portal

Personal Income Tax Resources Educate and Provide Guidance

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 6, 2013) - The Certified General Accountants Association of Canada (CGA-Canada) today launched its 2013 Tax Portal, a national one-stop resource for personal tax information.

"We are pleased to offer a dynamic portal of tax resources and bring value to the public and our members," says Anthony Ariganello, CGA-Canada's president and CEO. "The completion of personal income taxes can be a challenging endeavor and CGAs are here to provide guidance and make the experience less daunting."

Designed for both the public and business professionals, the portal features access to the 2012-13 Personal Tax Planning book, key filing deadlines, links to advice and news articles, and a link to a national directory of more than 2,250 CGA firms called Need an Accountant.

CGA-Canada's 2012-13 Personal Tax Planning book is a comprehensive guide to current tax law, regulations and trends. It also provides timely tips and practical examples, which can be easily interpreted by a non-accounting professional. The Personal Tax Planning eBook is available through CGA-Canada's online learning site, PD Net, as well as Chapters/Indigo through their KOBO store.

Note to editors: CGA tax experts in your area are available for interviews. A list of Top Tax Tips, images and copies of the Personal Tax Planning book can also be provided.
