Auto-fill my return is a secure CRA service that allows individuals and authorized representatives using certified software, to automatically fill in parts of an income tax and benefit return with information that the CRA has available at the time of the request. Read more on the CRA website. about this service.

This feature is only available for licensed software copies. 

Please watch the short recording of how the process looks like in myTaxExpress 2021.

 

Although the written instructions below are based on myTaxExpress 2015, the entire process is similar in newer versions too.

When you first run myTaxExpress 2015, a message window will pop up, "Do you allow myTaxExpress 2015 to accept Internet incoming connection?", You can ignore or close this message. CRA's auto-fill my return will only use a local network connection (which is localhost).
