What is E-File?
E-File is a service that lets authorized service providers to send individual income tax return information to the CRA directly from their own software used to prepare the tax return.
The software used optimizes the tax credits and benefits allowable in addition to the amount of the total taxable income. Furthermore, the person who prepares the return has the ability to file for a previous years tax as well as for the current year’s tax. Here at the Income Tax Ottawa offices, we are a registered user for E-File for the Ottawa, Nepean, Kanata and Orleans area.
Because of this we are able to file your tax return directly to the CRA by means of the web service. The result is an instant acknowledgement of receipt of the tax return. This also aids us with the capability of providing an instant refund for those who qualify.
