OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 3, 2012) -
Did you know…?
As part of a Government of Canada initiative to continuously improve how it offers online services, the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) is now offering a second login option. In addition to the CRA user ID and password, you may now also be able to use your online banking information to log in to the CRA's My Account, My Business Account and Represent a Client online services. The new login option means that you will have one less username and password to remember.
This service is currently available for those who use online banking services with TD Bank Group, Scotiabank and BMO Financial Group.
How it works
When you go to the login pages for My Account, My Business Account and Represent a Client, you will find two options; Sign-in Partner Login and CRA Login. To login with your online banking information, select the "Sign-in Partner Login" button. You will be routed to the SecureKey Concierge service, where you simply select your financial institution and log in. If this is your first time using your banking information at the CRA, you will be asked to identify yourself by providing some personal information. My Account and My Business Account users will be mailed a CRA security code that you must enter to complete your registration.
If you wish to continue to use your CRA user ID and password, select "CRA Login". To register for a CRA user ID and password click on the "Register" link.
Important facts about security
Regardless of how you log in, no personally identifiable information is communicated between the CRA, SecureKey and your financial institution. During this process, the CRA will not even know which financial institution you use, nor will your bank know that you came from the CRA.
