Can't NETFILE a return for a deceased spouse.


Recommended Posts


I am getting an error message when I am at the final stage of filing.  I am doing a Family return and one spouse passed in Sept 2022.  I have completed everything correctly but when I get to the Review section, there is a message that I cannot NETFILE the federal return for the deceased person.  All the error says is 

> This person is deceased *

I thought you could Netfile deceased person's file with UFile.  Now I am not sure what to do ...do I still proceed with Netfiling the living Spouse?  They are pensioners and do income splitting.

Thanks in advance for any help!

Hello Debra B,

In Tab 4, at the bottom of the screen, select the PDF Icons :
[PDF] Federal Print  <- - - - FOR all including Quebec
[PDF] Quebec Print <- - - - IF in Quebec
FYI – for the entire tax return:
[PDF] Download PDF

Then depending on your PDF reader, eg. Adobe Acrobat, Microsoft EDGE; you can save to: 
*desktop, downloads, file directory
*external device such as external hard drive, USB key, cloud drive

~~~~~~~For the Tax Return Instructions~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
>>Tax Return (tab 4)

You only need to send to CRA those pages with [CRA] printed on the top left hand corner.
