OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Jan. 27, 2010) -

Join the millions of people who trust the convenience, security, and speed of the online services that the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) offers.

See how fast you get your refund!

File your tax return over the Internet using NETFILE-certified software. You can get your NETFILE access code at www.netfile.gc.ca/netfilecode or through My Account at www.cra.gc.ca/myaccount. If you use the services of a tax preparer, ask them to file your tax return over the Internet using EFILE-certified software. For more information, go to www.cra.gc.ca/efile-individuals. If your tax return contains the most common tax information, TELEFILE may be for you. If you don't have a TELEFILE access code, call 1-800-714-7257 to get one, then call 1-800-959-1110 to file your return. For more information, go to www.cra-arc.gc.ca/telefile.
