Ontario Trillium Benefit is calculating incorrectly

ProFile is calculating the ONBEN Trillium Benefit incorrectly.  Where is the form that this number comes from so I can correct it manually and override the amount that feeds to the letter???????

I kind of like my software (over $3,000 worth) to at least be able calculate the amount properly even though this is not an efiled amount.

I don't need hundreds and hundreds of phone calls asking why the amount I canculated was wrong and I don't really think I should have to correct and over-ride the mistake

Answer

What appears to have happened is your people forgot to do the indexing.  Every credit number and exemption number is copied from the 2013 constants.

If you go to

http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca/bnfts/rltd_prgrms/ptc15_clcltn_sht-eng.html

it will give you the new numbers.

Shouldn't someone at Intuit have thought of this?

People come to ProFile for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
