Interesting tip on classing the building as land to prevent an accidental miss on the CCA override.
I find it really easy to miss the override in the following situations:
- reviewing the work of students, employees, and sub-contractors in long batches.
- when working hyper long hours or during tax rush or with interruptions.
- tax returns done in multiple stages due to missing documents. By my 4th+ review and micro change, I am less aware of the over-ride.
As much as I love depth, breadth, and many add-ons of TaxCycle I find the T1 module take me much longer to review the data entry forms than in ProFile or TaxPrep due to the layout and font. The biggest benefits to TaxCycle over the rest are on the workflow, letter, printing, reports, client manager, and support. Others love the DoxCycle module. For me, the T1 data entry and review is less than ideal. If possible I would prefer the font on the descriptions of the fields to be smaller or more compressed and the data entry amounts to be larger, expanded, or to pop more.
I would like to be able to lock the override so that it would take two keystrokes to unlock.
I would like a summary sheet of my overrides.
I would like to see a toggle or a setting at a client level to set the over-rides similar to the optimization form. This would be much preferred to the various preparer created workarounds and would scale better when hiring staff.
Items to include on such a page could include the following:
Suppress or Limit or Increase or Note
CCA - to suppress altogether such as rental building.
CCA - to pro-rate or limit based on kms or % use
CCA - to note a terminal loss or recapture amount
RRSP - limit claim to carryfwd
RRSP - increase to add slips with receipts but no AFR.
Eligible Dependent - shared custody and claim in alternating years.
Childcare expense - shared custody and claim in alternating years.
Spousal support claim - limit to actual payment rather than agreement when under Family Support Orders.
I am sure that if you had such a form that others would find additional uses for it.
