Save time and money!
Are you registered for the CRA's MyAccount?
The Canada Revenue Agency's My Account is a secure portal that lets you view your personal income tax and benefit information, as well as manage your tax affairs online.
It's available 21 hours a day, 7 days a week, with transactions processed immediately. You can track benefits, find assessment notices, check contribution limits and more. For a detailed list of services, click here.
Why should you sign up for this?
Once you are registered, you will be able to access your own information instead of being charged by your accountant or bookkeeper to find it.
Is it safe to use?
CRA uses specially configured computer web servers and corporate firewalls to protect our servers from unauthorized access. Your personal information is securely stored on systems that are not directly accessible from the internet. The risk of your information being 'hacked' is very low. They are constantly updating their features to improve security for the users.
To sign up for this service, you will need:
- your social insurance number
- your birth date
- your current postal code
- your last tax return (it will ask you to confirm an amount from a specific line on your return)
Once you complete the sign up, you will only need your CRA user ID and password to sign in to your account.
