The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) invites students to participate in the CRA's first-ever tweet chat. Post-secondary students and high-school students will have the opportunity to ask the CRA questions about filing an income tax and benefit return.
When: Thursday, April 10, 2014 Time: 2-3 p.m. Eastern Time Where: Follow and use #StudentsAskCRA on Twitter to participate Theme: "What's in it for me? Students: Filing your tax return"
CRA subject matter experts will respond to questions using #StudentsAskCRA on the CRA's Twitter account @CanRevAgency during the tweet chat.
-- The CRA's Twitter accounts were launched in the spring of 2011 and have over 37,000 followers. -- The CRA has tweeted over 4,400 tweets since 2011, helping Canadians manage their tax affairs. -- First-time filers can now submit their first tax return electronically to the CRA. In the past, first-time filers needed to submit their first tax return by paper. This year, choosing online filing couldn't be easier or simpler. -- In 2012, over 1.6 million filers took advantage of the tuition, education, and textbook amounts.
"I'm very happy to launch the CRA's first-ever tweet chat. It's a great way to communicate with young people across the country in a way that is relevant to them. There are so many benefits and credits available that students may claim as well as online services at their disposal to make tax filing fast, easy, and secure."
Andrew Treusch, Commissioner of Revenue and Chief Executive Officer of the CRA

The IoT market is on track to hit $7.1 trillion in 2020. The reality is that only a handful of companies are ready for this massive demand. There are a lot of barriers, paint points, traps, and hidden roadblocks. How can we deal with these issues and challenges? The paradigm has changed. Old-style ad-hoc trial-and-error ways will certainly lead you to the dead end. What is mandatory is an overarching and adaptive approach to effectively handle the rapid changes and exponential growth.

Assuming you don’t, why are we content to associate our identity with 10 random digits assigned by our phone company? Identity is an issue that affects everyone, but as individuals we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it.
