NETFILE is an electronic tax-filing service that allows you to send your individual income tax and benefit return directly to the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) using the Internet and a NETFILE-certified software product. It streamlines the tax-filing process and offers the following benefits:

  • It is secure and confidential.
  • File your returns directly from one of the NETFILE-certified products available using the NETFILE webservice.
  • No more need to upload your “.tax” file.
  • Refunds are issued faster (in most cases, with direct deposit, you can receive your refund in as little as eight business days).
  • It is more accurate (because the CRA doesn’t re-key the information, there is less chance of errors).
  • You don’t have to mail a paper return.
  • You don’t have to send in receipts, unless the CRA asks for them at a later date.
  • You get immediate confirmation that the CRA has received your tax return.
