Additional Income Tax News for 2014 and 2015, Direct Deposit, Email Correspondence From CRA

Information can be found here on the new Family Tax Cut.   That will apply to a few people, not all taxpayers.  There is also the Seniors income splitting which has been around for quite a few years now.  If you missed it, we can make the adjustments for you.   Other adjustments for anything that was missed can also be done.

You can register at the My Account section on the CRA website.  This will give you access to much of the data that they have on you.  Not all of course, they like to have some secrets!

Phone numbers and other information follows below. HINT: When you reach a recording press * which will usually get you to a real person within 2 minutes, they say. 

Direct deposit cannot be submitted with your tax return.  I have no idea why they stopped that as it will inconvenience many and delay returns perhaps.  I suggest you call them if you need to change or add Direct Deposit.   This are various numbers to call depending upon which service you may require.

Another new feature is the news that the CRA will now email your notices to you,  you can add your email address before we file the 2014 tax return.  Just ask us before we file the return.



By April 2016 the Government of Canada is switching from cheques to direct deposit for their various programs including Income Tax Refunds, Canada Pension Plan, Old Age Security, etc.

Call 1-800-959-8281 press * to get to a person, or visit the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) website and search the term direct deposit.

You can also register for “My Account” on the CRA website.
