I have a question about creating CRA online account

I am on the CRA website and I am trying to create a CRA online account: cra.gc.ca/myaccount

There is a question: "Tax information - amount entered on line 120 of your 2016 return (required)".

There is a text box field and I can input a number. But, I cannot enter anything for the .00 portion. Lets say it is 123.99. I can't enter .99 for some reason. Anyone know how to get through this step?

Thanks.

Ignore the .00 portion. Just enter the whole dollar amount. I did it already.

Be careful if they say your answer is wrong. They will lock you out quickly and it can be a hassle to reset.

This is exactly what happened. I cannot ignore the .00 portion and my account was locked. The next page asked me to enter a valid email address and filled out some questions. Then, I entered my phone number and some CRA agent contacted me to give me the security code. I think there is something wrong with the .00 cents portion on their website.

I am almost certain they only want the dollar value and no cents (I have a My CRA account and that's how I remember it). Don't round up if you did that. If you made $50,000.99, just put $50,000, not $50,001.

Agreed. This is what I did. The form would not accept the cents.
