How do I find a line number from my tax return?

When registering for CRA My Account service or calling the individual inquiries line, you’ll need to provide an amount from your return to verify your identity. The CRA will request a particular line number.

To find an amount from your tax return, you can either:

  • Click on Tax Documents in the left sidebar and click on the tax form you’d like to view; or,
  • use the saved PDF copy of your return.

The line number is indicated to the left of the amount. Usually the amounts the CRA is looking for are found on page 2 or 3 of your T1 General form.

To find an amount from your return, navigate to the Summary section of your return and click on the arrow to review a line-by-line summary of your return.

If you saved a PDF copy of your return, you can find the requested line number on the T1-General or Schedule 1.

Here’s how to access a previous year’s return.
