Tax E-Filing On Hold

Canadians won't be able to e-file their tax returns for the next little while.

The Canada Revenue Agency has temporarily shut down its electronic services website over security concerns.

The precautionary move is related to the so-called "Heartbleed Bug" - a newly discovered software that can swipe passwords and your personal information.

The deadline to file taxes is April 30, but the Agency is hinting extensions could be granted if the problem lingers.
