Download Form T183, Information Return for Electronic Filing of an Individual's Income Tax and Benefit Return.
Print the form.
Part F of Form T183 must be completed in duplicate and signed by the taxpayer, or the person who is required to file the return under the Income Tax Act (examples: Trustee in Bankruptcy or Legal Representative), before the return is transmitted.
The form is year specific and only the current year version is acceptable.
Note: The use of signature labels on Form T183 is not acceptable. A signature other than the taxpayer's, the Trustee's, or the Legal Representative's, is acceptable as long as an applicable power of attorney exists.
The entries entered on Form T183 must accurately reflect the entries on the electronic return. If the return is not accepted as originally transmitted, and the changes required for re-transmission alter the refund or balance owing by more than $300, a new Form T183 must be completed and signed.
EFILE software generates a Document Control Number at the time a record is created. Record this DCN in Part H. In addition, for each EFILE Online return accepted, the system generates a confirmation number. This confirmation number should also be recorded in Part H of the form.
As required by subsection 150.1(4) of the Income Tax Act, both you and your client have to keep a copy of the completed Form T183. Instruct your client not to submit the form unless we ask for it. Keep your copy in a secure location.
Form T183 must be kept for at least six years following the date that the return was filed. Written permission is required for you or your client to destroy Form T183 before the six-year period is up. For more information, see Information Circular IC78-10R5, Books and Records Retention/Disposal.
