Is it just my bad luck, or is Auto-Fill My Return less reliable this year. In my small practice (under 100 T1s) I am finding a surprising number of clients’ online record lacks the T4 or T4A for their major source of income. I’m used to missing T3s and T5s, the odd duplicated slip, amended slips labelled original and vice versa, hit and miss RRSP receipts and so on, but this is the first year since AFR started that I’ve encountered so many missing T4s and T4As. Only one has shown up on a second download a week or so later.
It reminds me of a story an old boss of mine told about a certain radio personality who used to leave the T4 from his principal job out of the shoe box every year. Apparently he was hoping his return would land on the desk of the one tax return processor who didn’t listen to his daily broadcast.
