Auto-fill my return makes doing your taxes easier

Short on time this tax season? Try Auto-fill my return. This secure Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) service automatically fills in parts of your income tax and benefit return with information the CRA already has on file, making online filing even easier. This past year, Auto‑fill my return was used more than 8 million times.

You can use Auto-fill my return if you file your return using certain NETFILE-certified software and are fully registered for My Account. You can use it to do your 2017 taxes, as well as your 2016 and 2015 taxes if you have not filed tax returns for those years.

What does Auto-fill my return do for you?

Auto-fill my return automatically fills in certain tax information for you, such as:

  • amounts from T4, T3, and T5 slips
  • registered retirement savings plan contribution limit
  • Home Buyers’ Plan repayment amount
  • Lifelong Learning Plan repayment amount
  • non-capital losses
  • capital gains and losses
  • capital gains deductions

Before you send in your return

Remember: Auto-fill my return does not file your tax return for you. Even after using Auto-fill my return, make sure all the other necessary parts of your return are filled in and the information given is accurate before you file.
