Before 2013 (the 2012 tax year) a four digit personal NETFILE access code was required to be able to use NETFILE to file your personal income tax return online. The NETFILE access code is no longer required. The only personal identification you need to enter is your social insurance number and date of birth.

The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) explains the reasons for the elimination of the NETFILE access code and how taxpayer personal information is protected.
