This has come up for me a few times this year and I’m wondering about others’ approach:
Client can be new or old, but hasn’t filed for a few years. No T1013 on file. May have old history or not on file.
In order to file the T1013, I usually choose the latest year (2018 currently) fill out name/SIN and print and file the T1013 when I get the signed copy. Then I have to go back to the earliest year, AFR/complete those years, working forward (that part is fine)…and then delete the 2018 and recreate or overwrite it. Seems cumbersome, but I can’t figure out a more effective way.
Note: I don’t use the T1013 from an earlier return b/c I’m not sure it’s in the correct format for “current filing” anymore…if it were, I could start with the earliest return, save it and then work forward directly. Does anyone know?
