New Log in Features for CRA's Online Services
OTTAWA, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 12/03/12 --
Did you know...?
As part of a Government of Canada initiative to continuously improve
how it offers online services, the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) is now
offering a second login option. In addition to the CRA user ID and
password, you may now also be able to use your online banking
information to log in to the CRA's My Account, My Business Account
and Represent a Client online services. The new login option means
that you will have one less username and password to remember.
This service is currently available for those who use online banking
services with TD Bank Group, Scotiabank and BMO Financial Group.
How it works
When you go to the login pages for My Account, My Business Account
and Represent a Client, you will find two options; Sign-in Partner
Login and CRA Login. To login with your online banking information,
select the "Sign-in Partner Login" button. You will be routed to the
SecureKey Concierge service, where you simply select your financial
institution and log in. If this is your first time using your banking
information at the CRA, you will be asked to identify yourself by
providing some personal information. My Account and My Business
Account users will be mailed a CRA security code that you must enter
to complete your registration.
If you wish to continue to use your CRA user ID and password, select
"CRA Login". To register for a CRA user ID and password click on the
Important facts about security
Regardless of how you log in, no personally identifiable information
is communicated between the CRA, SecureKey and your financial
institution. During this process, the CRA will not even know which
financial institution you use, nor will your bank know that you came
from the CRA.
For more information about logging in using your banking information,
or the registration process, go to www.cra.gc.ca/loginservices.
