I have a t5008 which I entered I also have a realized gain statement on the securities that I cashed.

The T5008 is for $31000 and the realized gain is for $3274.    Do I enter the realized gain on the S3 along with the $31000 that the T5008 put on the S3.

Therefore the client pays capital gains on the $34274.  (Less 50%)

Or just enter the T5008 and they pay tax on the $31000.

If the proceeds are $31,000 on the T5008 they should not be entered as a gain, you need to also add the book value to calculate the actual gain. These are not always shown on the T5008 and and ACB has to be obtained. It should only be entered once, either using the T5008 or on the S3 in the section for sales of mutual funds and shares.

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.
