Can I file my return by phone?

Yes! On January 8, 2018, the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) launched a new free service called File My Return. Canadians with a low or fixed income can file their tax returns by telephone, with no need to file a paper return.

This service will be available from February 26, 2018 to April 30, 2018.

To be eligible for the program:

  • you must have a low or fixed income
  • your situation must remain unchanged from year to year and
  • you should have received a personalized invitation letter in the mail from the CRA in mid-February

For more information on the File My Return program refer to the CRA’s website or call them at 1-800-959-8281.
