cra autofill possible problem

Recommended Posts


First of all thanks for those who created and run this forum.  

I used cra autofill and it seems to want to upload all of my buys in sells in US dollars for the US trades.  I am aware that the CRA wants that information in Canadian dollars.  And my brokerage, Td, does have that information in Canadian.  So, I am wondering whether there is something wrong?  Or, is it going to transfer over to Canadian after it is imported?

also, I cannot seem to change this information before accepting it.  Some of the ACB"s are wrong, for instance.  Also, it lists some stocks as sales that had been donated to charty.  So, I would imagine that they shouldn't be there.  Will they be somehow elimanated when importedd?


Would the idea be to import everything and then change some and delete some transactions once imported>


thanks G

Hello gouthro,

Regarding :  "Will they be somehow elimanated when importedd: - no only you can correct the errors in the data, we have no way of knowing

Please be advised that for that purposes of downloading your T5008 slips for this tax season we have implemented a maximum download of 50 - 55 T5008 slips. This is due to the very heavy volume load, and the T5008 slips may be incomplete. Example: missing the ACB /cost/book value.Errors may also arise due to downloading of corrupted records, example, null entries.

Our recommendation is to enter only one entry manually from your recap report or the Capital gains realized report you receive from your broker.Please note that it is not necessary to download all your T5008 slips. One manual entry of the total amount showing the Proceeds of disposition and the cost / book value is sufficient.Note that even if you download all the T5008 slips, only the total amount is sent to the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) and if applicable Revenu Québec. The government agencies have already received copies of these slips and it is not necessary to itemize them in the software.

The brokerage or investment dealer should be able to provide a consolidated statement of activity for the year, with totals.

Hello Geo

and thanks very much for the reply. I have no trouble uploading all of the slips from TD investing. I was just wondering whether I would be permitted to alter them after uploading. From what you say, it seems that i am permitted. 
thanks again
