I don't think assesed means they have reviewed it but more like they have received it. As soon as I filed with SimpleTax, it was shown as assesed on the CRA website.
Weird...mine showed as 'in process' and has for a couple days

Mine says assessment date of march 16th too. And it doesn't show me a notice of assessment.

I'm kind of worried as I have a future assessed date of March 16 however, there is no Notice of Assessment Available as of today March 15. In the past, the Notice of Assessment comes out about three days before the deposit date, showing the deposit date a few days in the future.

I'm hoping CRA changed it's procedure and does not issue the notice of assessment until the day the money goes into the account. Otherwise, I'm probably flagged for review., and will probably have to wait months for my money.

Can anybody confirm that the actual notice of assessment is not visible until the CRA post-dated assessed date?
I have the exact same issue... and same dates..

Hey guys wondering if anyone can answer a very very simple question. Does My CRA say "Direct Deposited" or something similar when you look at your return? I set up DD after I netfiled and mine says "mailed". Just wondering if I should expect it later today or this week.

Under Important Information, you'll see:

Your 2016 return was assessed and a refund of $233,320 was deposited directly into your bank account on March 14th 2017.

If you set up DD after you Netfliled, they will mail your refund cheque. They basically take a snapshot of your account info (address, DD, etc) at time of filing and that is what they use to process your payment.

How does it work if you sent in a manual return?
Made an over payment to my arrears account to keep collections at bay, then my accountant netfiled 2015 and I had to manually file 2014 because it was late.
After all that, I set up a "My Account" with DD.

Still waiting for the manual return to be processed. I took 1month for them to acknowledge receipt and 3 months waiting for it to be processed.

Is anyone who submitted the return in April still waiting for their refund? Mine was assessed on May 11th, with this message under Important Info online suggesting the refund was deposited the same day:

"Your 2016 return was assessed and a refund of $XXX.XX was deposited directly into your bank account on May 11th 2017."

Yet I'm still seeing nothing in my bank account. Same situation with my wife's account too.

An update on the processing of manual returns. My accountant netfiled my 2016 return on May 18. That must have set a flag off that they had still not processed the prior manual return (I mailed last year), they sent a message through my account. Seems they did get the manual package back in December even though they once said it was received a month later. So 5months later after filing the manual return they responded with "We have forwarded your request to the appropriate section of the Sudbury Tax Centre for their review."

Interesting because it was sent to Sudbury in the first place. At least they recognize they have been sitting on it. Now I guess they have to find it.

In summary, my manual return has taken over 5 months.
