Notice of Assessment
We issue a notice of assessment for every income tax return you file. Notices are generally mailed out, unless you specifically ask to receive yours online. They are also available online in My Account at any time, even if you filed your return by mail.
We start processing returns in March and generally issue a notice of assessment within 14 days for a return filed online or 28 days for a return filed by mail. Processing times may vary if you file your return after March 31.
You can view your recent notices of assessment online at any time in My Account for individuals. This is the fastest way to find your notice of assessment number if you can't find the paper version.
To find out how to sign in to My Account, click My Account for individuals.
To inform us that you no longer want to receive your notices of assessment by mail and agree to receive all communications online only, you can:
- change your communication preferences in My Account;
- check the appropriate box when using authorized software to file your income tax return;
- complete the copy of form TP-1008-V, Consent to Online Correspondence Only, that is included in the income tax return package (TP-1.FG-V) when you file by mail (the package is only available on paper); or
- contact our client services.
