How long does it take to receive a tax return


3 weeks ago, I sent my GST tax return form and 2006 T1 adj form with necessary forms to the address that CRA gave me. I haven’t heard anything about my Tax Return from the CRA. I can’t access my account on the website. I’m just curious because this is the first time I filed my income from self employment, but not the first time filing my GST return.

Is 3 weeks wait normal? Which number should I call to find out about my Income Tax return and my business GST return?

Hi Little Mel, here is some information that might be helpful for you.

T1 Adjustments that are sent at the height of "busy" season for CRA could take up to 20 weeks to review.

GST tax returns usually take about 6 weeks at this time of year.

If you need information about your GST tax account, call CRA business


If you need to find out more about your T1 Adjustment for 2006 or any matter relating to your personal taxation account, you can call CRA general inquiries at 1-800-959-8281.

Unfortunately, the T1 adjustments are NOT available to view on CRA’s MY ACCOUNT.

I hope this information helps you.

EDIT @ 3:12 PM MAY 2, 2007

Forgot to mention one thing, how did you send in your T1 Adjustment and GST return? In separate envelopes, I hope, and by registered mail for each item (I use Canada Express Post and I pay the extra $1.50 to ensure that I have proof of receipt from CRA).

If you sent them together in the same envelope by prepaid ordinary mail, there is no way to determine whether or not CRA has received it, nor how long it will take to process the paperwork you submitted.

I hope this additional information helps you.
