What is E-File?
E-file is a means of filing your tax return electronically. It is an automated service that allows anyone who prepares tax returns to file on behalf of the person who belongs to the return. Of course, if you do your own taxes you have this same ability as long as you use a CRA approved software, this same stipulation applies to the tax preparation service.
The software involved helps determine the tax credits and benefits allowable in addition to the amount of the total taxable income. Furthermore, the person who prepares the return has the ability to file for a previous years tax as well as for the current year’s tax. Here at the Ottawa Tax Preparation offices, we are a registered user for E-File for the Ottawa area.
Because of this we are able to file your tax return directly to the CRA by means of the web service. The result is an instant acknowledgement of receipt of the tax return. This also aids us with the capability of providing an instant refund for those who qualify.
