Cannot ReFile for the spouse - result 16 code


Recommended Posts


I have an account, which I use to Netfile my wife's and my tax return. I have netfiled both on April 30th, but I realized that some lines are missed in them. So I wanted to refile our tax returns. It went through for myself, but it is rejected for my wife, who is added to the account as spouse. I get error 16 which indicates that CRA has already received her tax return, while I want to do a ReFile for her. I have enabled the ReFile option under my Tab, but there is not any "CRA ReFile" option under his tab. Any hrlp regarding this would be appreciated.

Hi @Farshad,

To activate ReFILE, you must first file the original return with UFile and then use the ReFILE service but since her return was already filed in a different way (or account) then you unfortunately cannot ReFILE her return. I would suggest for her to access "MyAccount" for CRA where she can make changes to her return or submit a T1-ADJ form or she can contact CRA by phone to request a change.

Thank you,
