T5008 with a capital loss


EMO

Recommended Posts

I use the CRA Auto-fill to upload all documents that have been submitted to the CRA. All of the T5008 slips have been listed under Interest, investment income and carrying charges. Some of the slips, though, have a capital loss. My question is, Do I need to report this again under the Capital gains (or losses) section of UFile? Also, will the UFile program look at all the T5008 slips and automatically apply the capital loss against the capital gains or do I have to enter this somewhere?

The T5008 slips you downloaded will automatically populate Schedule 3, and calculate gain or loss. Make sure box 20, the ACB is not ‘0’.  If you have a previous year capital loss, you must indicate in the Interview section that you wish to apply it to this years gains.

Where exactly in the interview section do you choose that you want to use previous capital losses applied to this year's capital gains?

Hi @bzzz,  1- On the "Left side menu on the Interview tab", select "Interview setup".

2 - On the right-hand side of the screen. Go to the "Carryforward amounts and prior year information" group, check the box for "Losses of prior years, carrybacks" and then click "Next" at the bottom of the page.

3- Return to the "Left side menu on the Interview tab", select "Losses of prior years and carrybacks".

4- On the page appearing on the right, click on the icon of the plus sign "+" located on the right of the line "Net capital losses of other years".

5- On the page entitled "Net capital losses of other years" and enter your net capital losses of previous years.

6- If you wish to limit the amount of capital losses applied to the current year, enter the amount on the last line at the bottom of the page.

Do not forget, you must have had a taxable capital gain that is generated on line 12700 of the federal return.

The program will report the net capital loss on line 25300 of your federal return and on line 290 of the Quebec return.

To see the details of the application of net capital losses, click on the "Tax return" tab and select federal form "Net Capital Losses" and, if applicable, Quebec form "TP-729 - Net Capital Losses".
