Forms and Templates That Support E-signatures

Updated: 2021-01-13

As a temporary measure, the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) and Revenu Québec will recognize electronic signatures as having met the signature requirements on T183, T183CORP, TP-1000 and CO-1000 forms have the first five digits of the taxpayer's social insurance number or business number hidden. The CRA already recognizes electronic signatures on the AuthRep (former T1013) and business consent forms (former RC-59). For your convenience, TaxCycle also supports electronic signatures on other forms, not because CRA requires a signature.
