NETFILE is a service that allows the individual to file tax electronically. This is a transmission service that entitles the Canadian citizens to submit their individual personal income tax return to CRA. Encountering a message like “TurboTax Netfile not working” will be a serious issue especially if you face it in a tax season
The NETFILE service authorizes the user to directly send the individual tax benefit to the CRA (Canada Revenue Agency). And for doing so you need to have strong internet connectivity and a NETFILE – certified software product.
The TurboTax software developed by Intuit for the tax year 2016 are NETFILE1 certified. What this means is that you can claim refunds fast when you file through NETFILE. TurboTax helps in easy tax filing through NETFILE.
The tax return submission is done directly to the CRA with complete security in just a few clicks.
User gets instant notification of their CRA transmission confirmation number.
Quick refund is assured (It takes maximum 8 business days to have your refunds transferred to your bank).
The number of returns you can file with NETFILE is capped at 20. You cannot claim your refunds more than 20 times. This is due to the rules and regulations set by authorities. Also, all the NETFILE certified tax preparation softwares in Canada are capped with this limit. Thus this allows filing 20 returns with one computer or online account, no matter whatever is the income level.
This is a commonly reported error by TurboTax users via NETFILE. When the user tries to open and edit the “NETFILE ability tool” then you are often served with the message:
