How to change sin for new 2021 if I had temporary sin before ?

Got a permanent sin number however I filed 2018,2019 and 2020 using that temporary sin number, how can I when filling 2021 input new permanent sin number.

 

CRA already imported previous temporary SIN number to new permanent one, my question is how to import information from previous years while also updating the SIN number in turbotax ?

How to change sin for new 2021 if I had temporary sin before ?

For the next new return of 2021, you need to use the new SIN number to claim your tax return.

Please follow the instruction to change your SIN number:

1. Click on the heading Getting Started

2. Click on Personal information

3. On the Social Insurance Number Box, enter your new SIN number.

The new SIN will be linked to the temporary number by CRA. Therefore, you do not need to import your information from previous years.

If you require further assistance please contact our phone support team or contact us directly on Facebook or Twitter

Thank you for using TurboTax.
