Tax Tips: What's New for Tax Professionals and Preparers?

Did you know?

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Dec. 12, 2013) - There are changes for tax professionals and preparers this tax-filing season.

Represent a Client - Scanned documents

At this time, you can use the service only to submit documents in response to letters from the CRA's processing review and corporate assessing review programs that invite you to use the online service.
The Submit Documents service allows you to electronically send documents (examples include medical receipts, moving expenses, other employment expenses, child care expenses, Class 7 Assets, BC Training Tax credit, review of investment tax credit, and new acquisitions) to the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) for your individual or business clients. You can access it directly through Represent a Client and you can submit documents for multiple clients.

Income tax folios

The CRA recognizes the value of income tax interpretation bulletins for tax professionals and preparers, so it is introducing a new technical publication to update the information in the income tax interpretation bulletins and to improve web functionality. The new publications are called income tax folios. Moving forward, all the interpretation bulletins will be updated and replaced by income tax folios.

Online services

The CRA is committed to providing tax professionals with online services that are easy to use and cost effective. For more information on tax matters relating to tax professionals and preparers, go to
