You can better manage your finances if you have up-to-date information. That is why I am encouraging all my clients to make sure they sign up for their “My Account” with CRA. It is fast and easy. You can watch the video on my site where I show you, step-by-step, how to to set up your My Account with CRA You will be happy you did, because once you sign up you can:

Knowledge is Power – Get it with your CRA My Account:

• Find out your RRSP limit, home buyer’s plan balance and Tax Free Savings balance
• Print off your notice of assessments going back to 2005
• See if any carryover amounts like tuition
• See if you owe any money, if you made installments how much, etc.
• Request information through sending CRA a message
• Check your child tax benefit payments and when they were paid
• Check your HST credits, disability credits working income tax benefits, Ontario trillium benefits, so if it says they mailed you a cheque and you didn’t get it, you can call and ask where they sent it to… maybe you didn’t change your address?
• Submit required documentation to CRA when there is a request for information from you. Simply scan it and submit it electronically via your account!
• Save yourself money because you can do all these things yourself and save yourself service fees
• MOST importantly – protect yourself and your money! There have been a lot of scams recently so if you receive a request that seems a little strange you can log into your account and review any letters sent to you from CRA through the view mail function to ensure that it is a legitimate request from CRA.
