CRA Account Lockout for Almost One Million Canadians

CRA Account Lockout for Almost One Million Canadians

Earlier in 2021, there were reports that thousands of Canadians were locked out of their CRA accounts. On March 12, 2021 CTV News reported that almost a million people will be locked out this week.

The Canada Revenue Agency is locking out 800,000 users from their online accounts on Saturday, out of fear that people’s usernames and passwords have been hacked.

The CRA reported that they are doing this as a security measure and those affected can setup a new CRA user ID and password or by using a different login method associated with their CRA account.

For some, multiple delays will affect their ability to make payments or file documents on time.

If these issues have affected you in an adverse way such as additional penalties levied by the CRA, contact us as we may be able to help you.
