The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) is taking steps to make it easier for Canadians to file their income tax and benefit returns, no matter which method they choose.
The Honourable Diane Lebouthillier, Minister of National Revenue, today announced the launch of a new automated telephone filing service called File my Return. Over 950,000 eligible individuals with low income or a fixed income that is unchanged year-to-year will be invited to file their income tax and benefit returns simply by answering a series of short questions and giving some personal information. Canadians eligible to use File my Return will receive personalized invitation letters starting in the middle of February 2018. This service allows all the deductions, benefits and credits that the user is entitled to, without the need for any calculations or paper forms to fill out.
