I see there is also an email address on the ‘info’ for the T4 and T5 summaries. The CRA forms on the website don’t seem to have this on their forms – so I am wondering where this goes. Does this get sent to CRA?
Is there a way to do a global override so it doesn’t come up as an error for each form?
Regarding the global override if you watch this You Tube Video it will tell you how to do just that. The whole video is very informative but if you just want that part you can skip to close to the end.
Ok,now I want to Efile a T4 that isn’t mine. I need to know how to get rid of the email address for the contact person when it isn’t me. It won’t let me override and I don’t really want to put my clients email address in here.
The options doesn’t let me check off the box to ignore contact email. It’s greyed out.
Does the email address actually go to CRA? Can I just put in a fake one if I can’t override?
This is why there is a warning on the field when it is not filled out. Note: You will notice this same functionality in all other slip modules as the top section of internet filed slips all contain the T619 transmitter/contact information section at the top of the xml file.
Hi Rob I am new to Taxcycle and we are uncomfortable sending email information to CRA in regards to our clients. In DT max this was not a requirement for the 2018 returns. I tried the link in your post and it is no longer on the CRA site. Can you please confirm that the CRA wants email addresses for either our clients or us to contact us. This does make much sense as they do not accept email and will not correspond through email.
Yes the email is still a required component of electronically filing slip returns, the updated government specification link for the T619 (which is required as the top section of an xml return) can be seen here:
The specific contact email is still listed as required, I don’t know how often they actually use it to contact xml transmitters but as it is mandatory for us to include - we will continue listing it as required:
