My Account - CRA

Helpful information on how to sign up for My Account?

It is highly recommended to apply for your My CRA account and set up direct deposit. You will be able to sign in through one of the major banks (Sign-In Partners) or you can register for a CRA login. This does take time because it will send a code to your last address on file with CRA. This also gives you a direct link to your my Service Canada account.

Step 1

First you will need your Social Insurance Number

Step 2

Then you will need to enter the last postal code CRA had on file. (Example: the postal code on your last filed tax return.)

You will also need an amount from a line on your tax return. CRA randomly selects which line you need but it will be from your last filed tax return.

If you need help with this information you can contact your tax professional.
