Filling my first Canadian tax return via TurboTax as a non-resident and I do not have a valid phone number - I receive a NETFILE error. What should I do?

I'm filling my first Canadian Tax Return as a non-resident, and I have now moved outside of Canada back to Australia. I have reached the final summary page and I received an error indicating that my cell number is not valid (I no longer have a valid Canadian cell so I placed my current foreign number down). The error indicated NETFILE does not allow my number. What am I supposed to do?

As a non-resident, you will need to print to file your income tax return.  You can simply enter a Canadian phone number on your tax return and change it manually once you have printed out the forms to be mailed to the Canada Revenue Agency.
