UFile for Windows 2023 AFR "Error connecting with CRA server"


Recommended Posts

Hello Jim Burns,

AFR is currently closed.

The CRA's Auto-fill my return service for the delivery of 2023 tax year data will be available for use as of February 19, 2024.

The NETFILE and ReFILE services are now closed for the electronic filing of your initial and amended T1 personal income tax and benefit return. NETFILE and ReFILE services will re-open on Monday, February 19, 2024, at 6:00 a.m. (Eastern Time).

Until Feb 5th, UFile 2023 said that the AFR service would not be available until Feb 5th. Since then it delivers a "Error connecting with with CRA server". While NETFILE and ReFile are not available until Feb 19th is AFR not supposed to be available now and if so when will this be fixed? It does work for prior year versions of UFile and the CRA help desk told me it was supposed to be working now for 2023 tax data that has already been loaded.

The link you just reposted does not mention autofill. Below is a portion of the notification of outages from the CRA. It says "Auto-fill my return and Express NOA services will be unavailable from 11:00 p.m. on Friday, February 2, 2024, until 6:00 a.m. on Monday, February 5, 2024. (Eastern Time)" It makes no mention that this restart of the auto-fill service does not apply to posted 2023 tax data.

The following is a response I received from UFile support

The service "Auto-Fill my return" will be available in UFile 2023 in the next version (27.10) from the next week.
Thank you

When will version 27.10 be available so the auto-fill will work?
