The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) has announced that the existing T1013 form will be discontinued starting in February 2020. In addition, they are introducing a new process to allow representatives to request access through a web form on Represent a Client. See the CRA Newsroom item We’re changing how representatives are authorized.
We would like to clarify what this means for preparers who use TaxCycle to file these authorization requests:
In addition to these changes, the CRA is removing some restrictions for electronic submissions sent through software like TaxCycle. For example, "care of" addresses will now be supported. And, existing authorizations for individual tax accounts of deceased persons will no longer be cancelled.
