Did you know?

If you need to do business with the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA), why not do it when it's convenient for you?

Need to file your return? Make a payment? Change your address? You can do all this and more from the comfort of your home, thanks to the CRA's secure and easy-to-use electronic services.

Need to manage your business' tax affairs? No problem: you can do that online too.

Canadians are catching on to the advantages of managing their taxes and benefits online — it just makes sense.

Using the CRA's NETFILE service allows Canadians to file an individual income tax return over the Internet quickly and easily, at their convenience, from wherever they may be in the world. When combined with direct deposit, tax filers can receive their income tax refund in as little as eight days.

Taxpayers and businesses can use their financial institution's online or telephone banking services to make payments to the CRA. As well, the CRA's My Payment service, through participating financial institutions, allows for one or more payments to be made in one simple online transaction.

The CRA realizes that some Canadians will not be able to take full advantage of online services. That's why they will continue to maintain a variety of options to allow Canadians to file and pay their taxes, receive their benefits, and take advantage of tax credits. CRA telephone enquiries agents are available to assist you.

To explore the full range of online services available to you, visit the CRA Web site at www.cra.gc.ca/electronicservices.
