How can I check on the status of my tax return?

SOLVEDby TurboTax196Updated November 18, 2021
  1. Submit your return through TurboTax using the CRA’s NETFILE service or by mail. Note: If you successfully submit your return using NETFILE, TurboTax displays your CRA confirmation number
  2. Register for the CRA’s My Account service, if you haven't already
  3. Sign in to your CRA My Account
  4. The status of your tax return is displayed in the Tax returns section

Important: Contact the CRA and ask them to place a trace on your return if all of the following apply to you:

  • You've confirmed that you have a valid NETFILE confirmation number
  • Your CRA My Account doesn't reflect that your return was received or assessed
  • It has been more than 10 business days since you submitted your return

You can find a list of the CRA's return statuses here.
