Can i refile 2020 returns

As per CRA,

You can request a change to your tax return by amending specific line(s) of your return. Do not file another return for that year, unless the return you want to amend was a 152(7) factual assessment.

Wait until you receive your notice of assessment before asking for changes.

Generally, you can only request a change to a return for a tax year ending in any of the 10 previous calendar years. For example, a request made in 2021 must relate to the 2011 or a later tax year to be considered.


To ReFile your 2020 tax return please follow these links for detailed instructions:

Yes, you might be able to make any corrections to your previous returns, using TurboTax, and then remit using the ReFILE option.  You can make changes to your current and previous 2 tax years through Re-FILE.  You cannot use ReFILE in the following situations:

  • Making or amending an election
  • Applying for certain benefits
  • Applying for the disability tax credit
  • Have a current reassessment in progress
  • Have not yet received the original return assessment
  • If you have to change personal information

Processing time could take up to within 2 weeks when done online and processing might slightly be longer if your request needs further review, or if the CRA has to contact you for more information or documentation.
