Did You Know? – E-file Trivia

E-filed personal tax returns take 1.6 weeks on average to be processed as compared to 5 weeks for those that are paper-filed. This means that if you’re entitled to a refund, you get it approximately 3.4 weeks sooner if you e-file!

And if you also sign up for direct deposit, you also won’t have to wait for Canada Post to deliver your cheque! (CRA is phasing out cheques in favour of direct deposit, anyway, so soon you won’t have the option.)
