The CRA is allowing electronic signatures. Especially if you have a refund coming now is the time to file your return.
Temporary measure immediately enabling electronic signatures for the T183, Information Return for Electronic Filing of an Individual’s Income Tax and Benefit Return, and the T183CORP, Information Return for Corporations Filing Electronically
If an individual or a corporate taxpayer wishes to file their income tax return through an electronic filer, they must authorize the electronic filer to do so by completing a T183, Information Return for Electronic Filing of an Individual’s Income Tax and Benefit Return, or a T183CORP, Information Return for Corporations Filing Electronically.
The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) is committed to improving and enhancing the services it offers to Canadians, including digital services, and is continuously striving to ease the burden imposed upon taxpayers and tax preparers when filing income tax returns. From March 18, 2020 to August 31, 2020, to meet the evolving expectations of taxpayers and electronic filers during this difficult time, and to reduce administrative burden, the CRA will recognize a Form T183 or T183CORP that contains an electronic signature as having met the signature requirements of the Income Tax Act as a temporary administrative measure.
