What is an Estate Information Return? Why do I need to do it? Whenever a person applies for a Certificate of Appointment (formerly known as Probate), whether or not the deceased had a Will, the Estate Trustee must also complete an Estate Information Return within ninety (90) days of receiving the Certificate of Appointment from the Court. This document provides supplementary information as to how the value of the estate was calculated for probate purposes and looks similar to an income tax return. It must be filed with the Ontario Ministry of Finance. The Ministry has the ability to review and audit these Returns. This means that the Ministry may determine the Court fee paid is insufficient based upon the disclosures of the return and additional Court fees may be assessed. Before distributing the estate assets, it is wise to obtain a ‘comfort letter’ from the Ministry to ensure there has been no audit or additional fees assessed. If you discover any of the information on the Return was incorrect or incomplete after filing the Return, you must complete an Amended Return and file same with the Ministry of Finance within thirty (30) days of discovering the error or new information.

Nurturing Relationships with Your Friends It’s amazing how beneficial personal relationships can be on our overall health and wellbeing. But in order to reap the rewards, these relationships need to be positive, strong, and a two-way street.

THE GOLDEN AGE VILLAGE FOR THE ELDERLY FOURTH ANNUAL FUNDRAISING CONCERT Sept 16 6 PM

Make your relationships with your friends stronger than ever by following these 4 tips.

AN EVENING WITH SPIRIT Sept 22 7 PM

Make time. Life gets busy, we all know that, but carve out time in your schedule to connect with your friends. See their potential. You may think someone is just an acquaintance or casual friend, and unless you make the effort that is all they will ever be. Visit with each other. Spend time with friends; get out and meet at a coffee shop, enjoy an activity together, or arrange for a nice visit at home. Lend a hand. We could all use a third or even fourth hand sometimes. Find ways to contribute to your friends’ lives that goes beyond a chat or an offer of help that they may feel awkward following up on.
