  1. It's great and easy to use. I finished my tax return with SimpleTax but didn't submit yet. I already paid for Ufile, so I'm waiting for the fix. Maybe next year I'll just use SimpleTax because it works really well .

  2. Hello Goozman. Look at your last NOA for the RRSP area. You will see an Eligible RRSP amount as well as an Unused amount. The Available amount is the difference between those two. If you can access your file online at CRA you will be able to trace back over the years your RRSP contributions and deductions. Reconcile that report with your tax returns to determine what year the Unused amount started. The software will claim your current year contributions plus the unused amount and will deduct an amount up to your current eligible amount. Make sure you have entered the Unused amount to your data

  3. **UPDATE: I gave it a half hour and tried another browser (Microsoft Edge). I noticed that I missed entering if I resided at the same address than last year in the interview questions + paid for my spouse fees. Then I was able to submit my return. ORIGINAL POST: I've been using Ufile for years now and this is the first time this is happening. Perhaps this is linked to the Access code that we need to pre-enter? This is a new feature this year.. but now something isn't working when it comes the time to submit our taxes.. getting the same error. Anyone heard how to solve this?

  4. @Sukhjinder Thanks for the reply, I believe that we are talking about the same thing. Since the Interview tab of the UFile has the loss carryback page named T1A (see image below) I referred to it directly. But you are right, the true and complete T1A form is generated by UFile and can be viewed in the pdf version of the tax return file.

  7. I had a capital gain in 2017 that wiped out all previous capital losses and I ended up paying tax on remainder gain in 2017. In 2019, I had a capital loss that I was able to carry back to recoup taxes on capital gain from 2017 using uFile. All I did in my 2019 uFile filing was to fill up the 'Loss carryback" page under 'Losses of previous years, carrybacks' and that automatically generated a "Request for Loss Carryback" page in my Return with the needed amounts and years. Once filed, this resulted in a separate refund check and a notice of reassessment from CRA for the year 2017. Hope this hel

  10. Carry forward last year's file and in the menu bar near the top where family members are listed, select his name and then Delete selected at the end of the list. This will remove him from your file but you'll have to create a new file for him, ie, no carry forward. Not possible to change a dependent to head of family, for instance delete all family members but him. Ufile won't let you.

  12. Hi @Ryan1970, it is normal. If your parents are living with you, without necessarily being your dependents from a financial standpoint, you will have to account for their situation during tax season. First, you must create a file for your parents so that they can file their returns separately and transmit them to the competent authorities. If there are any remaining credits that each spouse is not able to claim for themselves, and they allow you to claim them, as well as the credit for caregivers, please proceed as follows: 1. Under the "Interview", tab on line "Family head" or

  14. I should also say that I used autofill extensively last year as a tax volunteer and it was extremely useful, in particular during COVID times. Many of our clients don't have good tax records, and we can't sit with them (so we can't phone the CRA - which with current wait times would be a joke - to get T slip information relayed to us verbally). If we have autofill we can get the forms done. If we don't I don't see how we are going to get it done, for these clients.

  16. Hi @jfchavez, yes Ufile support amended returns. If you tax return was successfully submitted, please go to your 2019 tax return in Ufile and select the "NetFile" tab. Click on "Federal submission" section. On the bottom of the page, click "Re-FILE". NOTE: A new page "CRA ReFile" will appear in the left menu of the "Interview" tab. -Select the section from the Left-side menu, then click "Federal ReFILE Mode". Make the modification that you want. -Click "Review" tab, then click "NETFILE" tab. -Tick the box "I agree with the ReFILE Terms and Conditions and Private Notice".

  17. Like the past number of years, I received an email from Ufile about a discount if purchased before Dec 14,2020. I purchased what I thought was UFile 2020 only to find out today as I was loading it in preparation for my 2020 taxes that the activation code was for Ufile 2019. This was very misleading and I'll be contacting them to sort this out tomorrow.

  20. Hello rosita. I suspect that the property tax assessment will be lower than the market value. Using that value will increase a capital gain later on and you will overpay taxes. You can easily get an appraisal that will give you a value for 2017 and use that as the Proceeds. Contact an appraisal company or real estate firm.

  22. To me UFile " (%) of home being used for personal purposes" is the opposite to CRA "% of your home used as a work space and for employment purposes". If I use a dedicated room of my house to work and that room represents 10% of the total space of the house. I put 90% on Ufile. However I'm still not getting the exact amount that I see on CRA calculator, but I'm much closer

  28. Same problem. UFile starts IE even though Chrome is my default. I try to switch to Edge under the Settings gear in IE but still get the Oops Error. I double checked default apps and Chrome definitely set as default. Also checked the registry and there is no setting for browser for UFile. As well I checked the UFile config files and they don't have a browser setting. All settings seem to be coded into the UFile exe so this seems like a bug. My only thought is that my previous installations of UFile have set the browser as Internet Explorer and it carries into the latest installation.

  29. Greetings, I'm resurrecting an old thread from three years ago that still hasn't been addressed. What's the best way to transition dependants who have left home? Is there a carry-forward summary sheet I can use when I have to manually create a new return using all of my son's previous tax information? An option to create a new independent return when removing a dependant would be sweet and is actually expected from even semi-sophisticated software. I can't believe this was asked for three years ago and there's nary a hint of this functionality in your software. It's almost as if UFile ass

  30. Good morning LKB. Go back to the Interview setup. Then on the right look for Other topics, then Other deductions and credits. From there select Other deductions for Federal Line 23200. That allows the line entry you need for the deduction. https://www.canada.ca/en/revenue-agency/services/tax/individuals/topics/about-your-tax-return/tax-return/completing-a-tax-return/deductions-credits-expenses/line-23200-other-deductions.html

Hi Bikram1738, You are considered to have disposed the property at the time of the change in use for proceeds equal to its market value (FMV), and to have reacquired the property immediately thereafter at a cost equal to its market value. So it result in a capital gain you must report but with an exemption and a rental income . Then you have to report your rental income for 2020. To report the sale of your principal residence, please follow the steps below: 1. On the "Left-side menu on the Interview tab", select the "CRA Questions" topic. 2.

NOTE: 1042-S is used to report US withholding tax, UFile does not have the US 1042-S form as such. And UFile does not support it. You still use UFile you just have to find a place to report this US withholding tax paid. Each one of the respective places for foreign income has a place where you can report US withholding taxes. For example, foreign pension income : "Amount of foreign tax paid". This en

  36. I should have mentioned that the data entry for the building disposition for "Proceeds" should be only the building portion of the disposition price. Lets say 80% of the $500,000, so enter $400,000. Then for "ACB of the disposition" enter $240,000. That will give you the gain for the building. Now for the land portion you will need to scroll down the list in the CCA area for the income/rental statement and add a category for the land. Once that schedule is in place (if not already done) complete it for the land disposition portion and the land ACB portion, and ask to calculate the gain as

    Same here for password reset problems. Have been a 10 year plus happy client until this year. I tried to log in to take advantage of the 30 % for 2020 tax year. My password would not work and was not able to reset. Followed instructions and sent email for assistance. Waited over week for answer which gave several options, but did not address the password reset required to open account. Phone lines are busy and they do not provide a toll free number. You would expect a email advising of changes to account. Hum maybe another company going forward.

Has been a UFile customer for the past several years. Submitted tickets twice through their website but have not received any reply in the past three weeks. Can anyone provide me UFlile’s e-Mail to contact them directly?

  41. Thankyou very much Nawal that is what I was looking for. I also found this new item: after selecting Employment expenses; I selected: T777 Eligible employment expenses for an employee earning a salary . There is a new line entry: Have you teleworked due the Covid-19 crisis. By selecting Yes, a new line should open to ask for more information. I guess a new UFile update will include this new information.
