Netfile went through but then an error - result 16 code


Recommended Posts

I received my return but my wife hasn't.  It's been 14 days since the date we filed online through ufile.

So I filed my wife's return first and it went through.

I then tried to file my return and I thought I clicked on my name but I was still on my wife's tab and filed hers again.  It came back indicating "The Canada Revenue Agency's records indicate that your 2020 tax return was already received."

However Prior to my double file it indicated accepted and gave me a confirmation code for her return.  

So I went a head and clicked on my tab and submit my return and it went through fine.


Now when I look at both of our Filing Status mine shows File accepted and hers shows File Rejected.

Any ideas? I assume the second submission was rejected since the error states that we have already filed the return.

Also under Acknowledgment Report it shows the following with the date and time and confirmation number.  

This report only applies to electronic submissions for 2020. The transmission date and time, and the confirmation number will be automatically displayed upon a successful submission.


Should we be worried?
