What is the meaning of the field, In Care of?

You can use the In Care of field to provide the name of the person who receives mail on your behalf. Use this field only if you are getting your mail sent to someone else. The mailing address you provide should be the address of the person who is receiving your mail.

For example, if you are a university student and move frequently, or if you work overseas, you might choose to have your mail sent to your family home. In this case, provide your family home’s mailing address and enter the name of the person receiving your mail in the In Care of field.

Note: You can’t change your mailing address with the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) by filing your return using NETFILE. You’ll need to provide your new address to the CRA before you file your return. Otherwise, the CRA will use the address already on file for you. To change your address, use the My Account service on the CRA website or call 1-800-714-7257. To change your address with Revenu Québec, you should use the online services provided by Revenu Québec.
