Well It’s extremely quick if they know they are paying you nothing. I did my tax on Tuesday and by Thursday they let me know I’m eligible to receive nothing this year. So nice they can be that quick when it’s in their favour !

That really sucks. Especially when we pay so much in tax!

Yep and we miss out on the benefit by the smallest amount possible; I couldn’t believe we qualified last year and this year somehow we are JUST over the threshold. Sucks big time

Mine says will be finalized by August 28th, and I think I lodged it July 26, something like that. It was ridiculously hard to do, I had to have documented proof of everything from the children's existence to my underwear size 😂 I don't know what the cut off is either, so I don't know if it was A waste of time doing it or not
