Representative authorization

New process for confirming a representative

We’ve introduced a new way to authorize a representative, which will help you protect your tax information using My Account or My Business Account. To learn more about the new process, go to Confirm a representative using My Account or My Business Account.

All electronic authorization requests by representatives for individuals and business clients will not be activated until the representative has been verified. Clients may be contacted by the CRA to verify the representative’s authorization request.
