Please know there are a variety of ways to file your tax returns:


If you can access a computer, you can file online using CRA certified tax-filing software. For more information visit: https://www.canada.ca/en/revenue-agency/services/e-services/e-services-individuals/netfile-overview.html


File my Return is a free, secure, and easy to use telephone service for eligible people with low income or a fixed income whose situations remain unchanged from year to year.

You can still file your income tax return on paper. If you filed on paper last year and your address information with the CRA was up-to-date, you should have received your paper tax package in the mail by February 17, 2020.
