Remove the "Do Not File" watermark from a T1 return

by Intuit Updated 1 year ago

Note: This feature is only available for 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020 T1 returns.

A DO NOT FILE or DRAFT watermark appears when a printed copy of the T1 is printed after electronically filing.  This watermark helps prevents the filing of a paper return after it has already been accepted by the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA).

The watermark may also display when the CRA requests a copy of the paper return after filing.


To remove the watermark, navigate to the T1 EFILE form. Scroll to the bottom of the form and deselect the option Uncheck the box if you are required to re-submit the T1 condensed form for the EFILED accepted return:
