CRA will not allow efiling of a return that has a spousal transfer of the DTC, even though the software automatically fills in the transfer amounts on Schedule 2 and ABS2

The error message indicates Efile error #432 S2.  I have removed the amount from field 357, but it still won't go.  I've also removed the transfer amount from the Alberta schedule, but that makes the spouse taxable, even though she's entitled to the transfer.


CRA may not have the info on their files to allow the transfer.  Contact Efile help desk, tell them to add the Spousal info to the Spouse (who doesnt have the disability) and it usually takes 24 hrs (even earlier) then try to Efile again.

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.
