Written on Thursday, April 26th, 2012

If you are not set-up to e-file and are expecting to rely on the discretion of the registrar to file in paper form, you are taking a significant risk that you will not be able to file it. I suggested in a previous post that you may get the registrar to exercise discretion to allow you to file in paper form, but I expected there would be less empathy for these requests going forward.
