Income Tax Website Locked Out

For Canadians it’s that time again, to report your income tax for the year. However, most were surprised when they were locked out of their online taxpayer accounts on Saturday. The Canada Revenue Agency once more grapples with another cybersecurity breach. An investigation revealed that some usernames and passwords may have “been obtained by unauthorized third parties and through a variety of means by sources external to the CRA,” and that it could take another month for it to be resolved. Meanwhile, many taxpayers are still struggling to regain access to their accounts after it locked more than 100,000 as a “precaution” in February. Without online capability, would you consider another method of reporting your income tax?
