New client comes in and hasn’t filed (or needs an adjustment) in prior years, let’s say 2012.
Issue 1: The only T1013 that CRA will accept is the current (2015) version.
Issue 2: So now as I carry forward the returns I will lose the T1013 confirmation information or will have to manually input all the carry forward information.
Am I missing an easier way to do this and not lose the confirmation info?
Create the current year file and file your T1013;
While on the personal information screen, right click on the coloured background and select prior year return and you should get this following prompt,
Create the return and keep going until you reach the year you need to do.
complete the return as required;
you should then be able to go into the next year and refresh the prior year datafrom the data tab.
