Auto-fill my return (AFR) Not Communicating with CRA?

Trying to determine whether this is an issue on my end or if AFR is offline

I carried forward a T2 return this afternoon and clicked on T2 Auto-fill. I got the pop-up as usual, and tried to initiate the download session but the little wheel keeps spinning and eventually times out with the error message “TaxCycle was unable to complete the download”. I tried a couple more times but the same issue. If I hit cancel TaxCycle seems to completely freeze up.

I then tried to AFR a T1 return and received the same communication error.

I can’t remember the last time I had an issue with AFR or T2 AFR so before I start pulling things apart I was wondering if AFR is working for others.

thanks in advance.

I have been unable to Efile a T2 this afternoon - same little wheel.

@snoplowguy @LMK We are aware of the issue and we have sent a note to the CRA. We will keep you updated as soon as we hear from them.

CRA replied that they had a power outage at one of their buildings causing a break in any process that had to retrieve data from servers in that building. Things should return to normal shortly.

Really… You would think they would have backup power…


AFR is working for me now
