File Your Taxes Online or By Mail

You may file your tax return with the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) by Internet or by mail.

By Internet options: NETFILE or EFILE. The NETFILE option is for a taxpayer who wants to prepare his/her own tax return and send it electronically directly to the CRA. The EFILE option is for a taxpayer who has his/her tax return prepared by a registered electronic filing service provider…such as Liberty Tax Service…who then sends the completed tax return to the CRA electronically on behalf of the taxpayer. Both options require that the tax return be prepared using one of the commercial tax preparation software packages or Web applications certified by the CRA to meet system requirements.

By mail: Mail your completed paper tax return to the CRA tax center serving your region using the envelope included in your tax package.
