  3. Thank you for your quick response. This clearly should be a feature that Ufile should strive to add to their software.

  5. Hello dingfend88888, Re: unused tuition fees from 2016 According to CRA rules, a dependant can only transfer the unused tuition fees for current year to his/her parent. But, the taxpayer (student) can use the 2016 unused amount in 2017 to reduce his/her payable taxes down to zero if needed or can keep them for next year.
  6. Hello Stile, Carrying forward the tax file of a member who leaves the family Please note that there is no automatic way to carry forward the information of a person who left the family. This person must enter all his or her information in a separate new file. However, in this person's new file, do not forget to enter any amount that can be carried forward to future years. These carryforwards are usually shown on the Notice of Assessment received by this person in the previous year. It is also possible to check the "Summary of carryforward amounts" page under the tab "Tax return" in his or her file of the previous year. Since this person left the family, remember to remove this person from your family file. To do this, under the tab "Interview", on the line of "Head of family", choose the person you want to remove in the family file and click "- Delete selected" and a pop-up window will appear with the question "Are you sure you want to remove all data for (the dependant or the spouse) from this file?" By clicking "Yes" you will delete all of this person's data.
  7. I have been using UFile for several years now. I have two adult children who used to be dependents, but who this tax year (2018) are no longer dependent. I wish to create new individual tax returns for them using last years information. I haven't seen a way to do this and to be honest if I have to manually enter this information, I'm going to be upset. Surely this must be a common occurrence. Dependents eventually graduate and get jobs and leave the nest. If UFile wants to continue to have me (and my offspring) as loyal customers, this needs to be a feature. Any one have any idea how to do this???
  8. The Ufile Request Number I got is UF529370, could you please take a look and help? Thanks a lot.

    CCA and ACB for Rental Property

    Hello Flatlander, Rental income - CCA capital additions To enter your capital additions, follow the steps below: Please note that the land is not depreciable property. Therefore when you acquire rental property, only include the cost of the building. Your rental property may belong to class 1, 3, 6, 31 or 32, depending on what the building is made of and the date you acquire it, please visit the link provided at the end of this document. 1- In the "Left side menu on the Interview tab", select the item "Rental income" and choose the subsection "CCA". 2. Choose the Category that corresponds to your situation, and on the page that appears on the right, go to the line "Description and amount of capital additions", in the first field, enter a brief description and enter the amount in the second field. 3- For the line "Application of half-year rule to current year additions" from the drop-down menu to your right, select "Yes". 4- If the property in question is not subject to the half-year rule, select "No". 5. On the line "Limit CCA or CECA for this class" if you do not wish to claim a capital cost allowance, enter $ 0.00. The cost of additions of a category already existing will be added to column 3 of Part A. Additions will appear on page 3 of federal Form T776, Parts B or C, as applicable.

    CCA and ACB for Rental Property

    Hi, I am hoping someone can help clarify a couple questions about the CCA entries. 1st question: I am used to the paper form that asks for the "total cost" of additions to the class. For that I would include all the costs of the purchase. Now ufile online is asking for the "amount of capital additions" and then "the ACB of the depreciable capital property in this class" This is the 1st year of owning the property and I am confused about what to enter in each category. Do I list only the purchase price in amount of capital additions and then add in other costs (legal fees and property transfer tax) for a ACB total? 2nd question: The apartment came with appliances, do I need to estimate a value for the used appliances and list them in their own CCA class? I am not planning on claiming any CCA this year, but I understand that I need to report the capital additions. Thanks for any help!

    Error in UFile tax calculation

    I have been using this software for many years ,but I just had a chance to go over all lines after UFile calculates the deductaion for business-use of home. I found something strange and that is the fact that after I enter my home based business expenses, UFile automatically calculates Capital cost allowance (CCA) for business use of home. So this year, after adding all expenses based on percentage of use of home, I saw CCA for home in my form 2125. It is not recommended to add CCA for business use of home,since it may jeopardize your principal residence capital gain exemption. Also, the way that software calculates is not clear. UFile adds CCA without asking any question from user if he/she wants to deduct CCA for home based business use of home. I spent a lot of time after I figured out about the issue. Very frustrating,but still could not remove CCA from my business use of home page (form 2125).( See the attached file ) It is really bithering because I have not had any intention to deduct CCA for my house ,but UFile deducted it automatically and submit it to CRA. Any suggestion is appreciated.

    Adjustment Request - Adding Dependent

    Hello lemigar, How to request an adjustment (reassessment) to a tax return You can use the program to make an adjustment to a tax return that has already been filed. Make sure you have received your notice of assessment before asking for changes to your return. NOTE: We recommend that you keep your previously filed tax return, and prepare separately an amended tax return based on the changes you make. Print this amended tax return and compare it with your original tax return. Take note of the line numbers that are affected, as you will need them when completing your adjustment request. To do so, please follow these steps: 1- In the "Left-side menu on the Interview tab", click on "Interview setup". 2- On the page that appears to the right, scroll down to the "Other topics" section, check the box for "Adjustment request for a tax return that has been filed" and click "Next" at the bottom of the page. 3- Return to the "Left-side menu on the Interview tab", select "Adjustment request" at the bottom of the list and, on the right-hand side of the screen, click on the plus "+" symbol to the right of the form you need, either "T1-ADJ adjust a federal tax return" or for Quebec residents "TP-1.R adjust a Quebec tax return". 4- Select the "Taxation year" you want to correct from the drop-down menu to your right, and then enter the relevant information. 5- For the question "Line number of the jacket regarding the adjustment", choose the one that applies from the drop-down menu. Then, on the next two lines, enter respectively the amount that was claimed on the original tax return, followed by the revised amount to be claimed on the amended tax return. 6- If you have multiple lines to correct, click on "+ Add another" to add additional lines. 7- If you have additional information or explanations, fill out the bottom section. If needed, attach a separate sheet with your adjustment request by recording the necessary information. If applicable, provide also the corresponding line number for the credit. 8- For Québec residents who wish to amend both their federal and Québec returns, in the "Left-side menu on the Interview tab", click again on "Adjustment request" at the bottom of the list and repeat the procedure. 9- Once you have completed your adjustment request(s), click on the fourth tab "Tax Return". 10- Double check to make sure the adjustment request(s) are completed correctly. Then, click on the "Print" icon, choose the option "Selected pages" and on the list to the right, select the pages to print, i.e. the forms T1-ADJ (federal) and/or TP-1.R (Quebec). To select multiple pages, press and hold the "Ctrl" key on your keyboard when clicking the pages to print from the list. Finally, click on the button "Start printing". Please note that you cannot submit an adjustment request electronically via NETFILE. You must print and mail the T1-ADJ and/or the TP-1.R. Be sure to sign your request(s) and provide all supporting documents. Also, please make sure to include a telephone number where the CRA and/or Revenu Quebec may contact you during the day. The CRA will send you a Notice of Reassessment once your adjustment request has been processed. Revenu Québec will do the same once they processed your TP-1.R form. If you wish, you can also amend your tax return online by using "My Account" on the CRA website. For more information, please visit the following links: For CRA: For Revenu Quebec: N.B. Once you add your son to the file you will find the changes done to schedule 1.
  14. I have to amend my return from 2013 to 2016 which I need to add my son as a dependent In the Adjustment Request, how do I add my son?
  15. Hello CPJ, Given the particularity of your situation, we suggest that you send your request to the UFile support group.
  16. Hello dingfeng88888, To help you better, please provide your request number to do the follow up for you.
  17. Does anybody or Admin know? Since I have not got any response from here, I sent this question to Ufile Contact, no response either. I have been using Ufile for many years but now seems Ufile is going downwards, maybe it is time for me to try other products....
  18. My spouse was just approved for the disability tax credit so I filled out her info in that section and now I see her DTC transferred to me but I do not see the caregiver amount which I believe I am eligible for based on the information entered. How can I correct this?
  19. Got response from Ufile Support Team, now their basic price only covers up to 2 dependents. So apparently the 3rd dependent will be charged $5+HST if a tax return is needed.
  20. This is occurring for me for the first time using Ufile for many many years now. How do you resolve this error, once logged in, I cannot access my own file, nor my little one's, I am met with a spinning load, and the following error message: An error occurred while executing the command definition. See the inner exception for details. [OK] [Cancel] Please advise, thank you!
  21. My child (my dependent) had some tuition paid in 2015. In 2016 Ufile correctly transferred $5,000 to one parent (lower taxable income?) and there was some leftovers (less than $5,000). This year (2017) I can see the correct leftover tuition amount under my child's data, I picked "let Maxback decide" as last year, but I do not see the leftover tuition amount being used under me or my wife. The leftover amount is less than $5,000 so this year Ufile should claim it all. Can anyone help? Thanks a lot.
  22. Under my Ufile account I file for my wife, my child and both of my parents (child and 2 parents are my dependents). In the past years I paid Ufile once and could generate tax returns for all of them. This year (2017), again I paid once and had no problem generating tax return for me/wife/parents. However, when I was trying to generate tax return for my child the system asked me to pay another $5 + HST. What is going on? Does Ufile start to limit 2 dependents we can file, and $5 for each extra dependent?
  23. Given the particularity of your situation, we suggest that you send your request to the UFile support group.
  24. I have the following problem. We completed taxes in March and sent it using Netfile. CRA still did not issue NOA. I now started to review the taxes and found that one income was doubled (two identical T4 in Interview section). Now I don't know if this mistake happened AFTER we sent the Netfile or BEFORE. We remember that it was correct when we sent and Tax Return was different from what we see now. Unfortunately, this return was not save in .pdf. What can we do? How to see the actual tax return we sent? Thank you.

    Tax return is retarded

    Hi sunle1987, Did you submit your return by using NetFile? To confirm your SIN number, we suggest that you call (CRA) : at 1-800-959-7383 or 1-800-959-8281. Since we are the designers of UFile software.
  26. Hi, I uploaded my tax files in April 2, 2018, but I am still waiting for the tax return. Why the processing is so slow? And I can not register on CRA. I got ERR.038 when I input my SIN number. Very confusing. This is my first-time file tax in Canada, I have a work permit here.
  27. Hello, I'm getting this message for my spouse's return "You cannot currently NetFile the Quebec return. If an (*) appears at the end of an explanation below, it denotes a NETFILE exclusion (i.e. the return cannot be transmitted)." 

    And the reason the software stated was 

    "The taxpayer is requesting an election (for example subsection 45(3) of the ITA) within their income tax return. *"


    Not sure what that even means.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
