Use NETFILE to send your return directly to the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) over the Internet.

Income tax preparation software companies must seek NETFILE certification from the Canada Revenue Agency (the "CRA") for tax preparation software products to be used in conjunction with CRA's NETFILE electronic tax filing service. For the 2019 taxation year, NETFILE certification of GenuTax Standard from the CRA has been obtained.

For the 2020 taxation year, NETFILE Certification of GenuTax Standard from the CRA has not been obtained at this time. Please consult the CRA website or beginning February 2021 to determine GenuTax Standard's certification status.
