Efie of First year T1 Tax Return

Can we efile a T1 Tax Return of an individual if it is his first Tax return.I know according to the existing CRA rules the first T1 Tax Return can not be efiled, but according to the new CRA rules, it is mentioned that if you file 10 or more tax returns then you must file them as efile. Does it applicable to the First year T1 Tax Returns too?

Answer

Samin,

You cannot file a return electronically in any of the situations listed in the CRA link below:

Here is a link that lists Mandatory electronic filing criteria for tax preparers:

For additional clarification please call CRA helpdesk.

Thank you.

People come to ProFile for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
