Authorize or cancel a representative
As an individual, trust, or T5 filer, your account information is confidential. We need your authorization if you want the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) to deal with another person (such as your spouse or common-law partner, other family member, friend, or accountant) who would act as your representative for income tax matters.
You can authorize more than one representative at the same time. However, you must complete and send a separate Form T1013, Authorizing or Cancelling a Representative, for each representative.
Form T1013 must be completed by you or your legal representative.
Form T1013 cannot be used to authorize a relay operator. For more information, go to Services for Persons with Disabilities.
