Cantax T1Plus Download CRA Tax Data Service
Streamline your T1 tax return preparation

The CRA’s secure Auto-fill T1 return (AFR) service is reliable and easy to use with Cantax, saving both you and your clients valuable time.

To access the Represent a Client service, you’ll need to provide a T1013 authorization from your client, along with your existing CRA credentials. From there you simply click on a download button to connect to the CRA service, and you’re ready to import tax data directly to your clients’ tax returns.

How it works
  • Connect to the AFR service through Cantax.
  • Transfer data by selecting the fields you want to update.
  • Compare current amounts with amounts downloaded from the CRA on one form, with diagnostics reporting the differences.

Downloading prior-year data
It is possible to download prior-year tax data. To download data of a given year, you will have to use the Cantax program of the year in question.

The prior-year data download is only available with the 2015 and 2016 taxation years for now, but the CRA will gradually make available data of additional taxation years until data of the three prior years is available (in addition to the current-year data).

Note that only data on slips of prior years will be available. In addition, data that does not relate to a specific year, such as carried forward balances, will not be available.
