The later deadline

Americans have to file their income tax forms by April 15. We Canadians have until April 30. I don't hate having to pay taxes, but I dislike doing them. That's why, in 1996, my wife and I found ourselves an accountant.

Ours is Benjamin Cheng, who runs a small office in East Vancouver. Yesterday, he finished our 2001 income tax forms for us. He charges us about $250 (plus GST) each spring, but that can be deducted from the next year's taxes. This year alone, I'd guess he saved me $2000, simply by knowing things I don't about how income taxes work. Well worth the money, I'd say.
