Add, Review, and Update the 2020 Transmitter Data

This is last year's information, but your 2021 tax slips will follow a similar process. Check back in January for more info!

The transmitter data identifies your organization to the CRA and MRQ when you submit the transmitter files. This article will guide you through adding the transmitter data for 2020.

If you’ve already created your 2020 Transmitter Data, please take a moment to ensure the information is still accurate. To do so, skip to the Review the 2020 Transmitter Data section below
