Intervivos trust returns
Are you filing a return for either a testamentary trust or an inter vivos trust? A testamentary trust is a personal trust or estate created on the day a person dies. Its terms are established by the person’s will (by law if there is no will), or by a court order under provincial legislation. All other trusts are called inter vivos trusts. The filing deadline for inter vivos trusts is 90 days after the year end. All inter vivos trust must have a December 31st year end, so the filing deadline is March 31st, except in leap years.
As 2016 is a leap year, your 2015 trust return will need to be filed by March 30th.
