The following is now available on the CRA Web site:
Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) Commissioner Michel Dorais today announced the Agency’s timeline to bring services back on line.
â€œWe have begun to bring some of our systems into production,â€ reported Mr. Dorais. â€œWe expect to have all of our taxpayer services, including EFILE, NETFILE, Change My Address and return processing back into full service no later than on Thursday March 15th, 2007.â€
The CRA is bringing back its temporary employees tomorrow morning to begin processing all outstanding files.
The security of taxpayer information is paramount for the CRA. The security and privacy of taxpayer data was protected and was never at risk during this preventive suspension of online services. A malfunctioning software patch is the cause of this service interruption.
CRA appreciates the patience and understanding of taxpayers during this interruption and is making every effort to restore full services as soon as possible.
Please check the CRA Web site at www.cra.gc.ca/update on a regular basis to see which services are available.
