Web access code
A Web access code (WAC) is a personalized code that is associated with your account number. You need a WAC and an account number, to access the secure areas of the CRA's Internet filing Web pages.
Where do you find your Web access code?
The Canada Revenue Agency no longer mails Web access codes. The Web Access Code that was provided to you in 2012 to file your information return is the same code you will use to file all future-years returns.
If you do not remember your Web access code or you require an access code for a newly created account, you have two ways to get your WAC:
- You can use our WAC online service ; or
- You can call our Helpdesk at 1-877-322-7849.
What does a Web access code consist of?
A WAC consists of six characters. Two of the characters are letters and four are numbers. The letters can be identified with an asterisk (*) below them. The WAC is case sensitive, which means you must enter it exactly as it appears on your letter. If you do not enter the code correctly, you will not be able to access the secure areas of the Internet filing Web site.
