Tax Agency Will Allow Certain Canadians to File Returns by Phone

Low-income Canadians will be able to file their tax returns by phone this year. Under a new automated service called “File My Return” announced by National Revenue Minister , about 950,000 Canadians with low or fixed incomes that don’t change from year-to-year can file their returns by answering a series of questions over the telephone. That represents between two and five per cent of all tax filers. People eligible for the new service will receive personalized invitation letters beginning mid-February. They will be able to access all the deductions, benefits and credits they are entitled to without having to do any of the paper work or calculations. For the two million taxpayers who filed using paper tax forms in past years, they’ll receive a tax package directly by mail this year instead of having to pick one up at a Canada Post…… Ed
