T3Express works differently than our other software products. It uses a paid points system, which is managed by our companion site That means you don't need to retrieve or activate a license for T3Express software. Feel free to download and explore the software before purchasing points. 

To efile or print a T3 return, you'll need to have 400 points ready, which equals $40.00 plus GST/HST. Make sure to purchase sufficient points beforehand. Follow these steps to do so.

Step 1: Get Efiler ID from CRA

 No Efiler ID? No problem! We can file your prepared T3 return for you for an additional 100 points ($10.00 + GST/HST). If you need assistance with filing, please don't hesitate to contact us when the return is ready and we'll be happy to help! In this case, start with Step 2 directly.
