EFILE Transmission Error FIX for Return of Fuel Charge Proceeds to Farmers Tax Credit

Received an error when trying to file farm partnership (T2042) claiming the Return of Fuel Charge Proceeds to Farmers Tax Credit located on 5B. I contacted EFILE help and here is the fix.

Override the Return of Fuel Charge Proceeds to Farmers Tax Credit located on 5B to make it zero on the original T2042. Next, Create another T2042, do not make it a partnership and add the information into Other Income so the amount comes in on line 9600.

EFILE help says we only need to do this for this year. It’s a problem for T1163 and T1164 too!

What’s happening is…
Electronic filing looks at the amount on 4C and times it by the partnership allocation which should agree with line 9946 for it to file properly. Because of the new amount coming in on 5B changes line 9946 so they don’t agree according to that “rule” or calculation, we need to create the additional T2042 for this 2021 tax year only.

Is this something that TaxCycle can adapt their program so we don’t have the extra work in creating another T2042 form? @cameron
