NETFILE is an electronic tax-filing service provided by the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). The service allows you to file your tax return directly to the CRA using the Internet.

If you use NETFILE, you won’t have the hassle of printing your tax return and mailing it to the CRA. If you are eligible for a refund, you could receive your refund in as little as two weeks.

Income tax preparation software companies must seek NETFILE certification from the Canada Revenue Agency (the "CRA") for tax preparation software products to be used in conjunction with CRA’s NETFILE electronic tax filing service. For the 2017 taxation year, NETFILE certification of GenuTax Standard from the CRA has been obtained.

In addition, if you have not already filed your tax return for 2014, 2015, and/or 2016, you may also use GenuTax Standard to file your tax return for either of these years over the Internet using NETFILE, if your tax return is otherwise eligible.

There are some types of tax returns that cannot be submitted electronically. These NETFILE restrictions are listed on the CRA's NETFILE website.
