Can you netfile if it's your first year filing a return?

Netfie error message says info doesn't match. Is that because it is the first time they filed a return?

You are correct. A first time filer will have no info with CRA to compare with. You will have to send it through the mail.

This not correct.  If the information doesn't match, the tax filer should check their DOB, SIN#, include any middle names if applicable and this will solve the problem.

To confirm, I was able to file for the first time using Netfile. I got an error the first couple times I tried, but then realized I needed my middle initial, and it worked after that.
