Delays in Processing T1 Paper Filed Returns

With ongoing processing delays due to COVID-19, CRA is expecting similar delays in the processing of paper-filed returns for the 2020 T1 personal tax season.

It could take about 10 to 12 weeks for the processing of paper-filed returns and paper-filed adjustments (up from the usual 8 weeks).

If you haven’t already, you may want to consider filing your personal tax return electronically this season. E-filed returns have a standard processing time of two weeks for 95% of returns.
