How to use ReFILE in TaxCycle

TaxCycle T1 is certified by the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) for ReFILE. If you filed a client's T1 return using EFILE, you can use ReFILE to make adjustments their 2016 tax return. The ReFILE service lets you change the same lines that individual taxpayers can change in CRA My Account. Just like with EFILE, you will receive immediate confirmation that your ReFILE submission was accepted or rejected.
