Deceased return - T1 Final - Is there a box in Profile to checkoff indicating that it is a T1 final return. Or do you just input the date of death

In your case the answer is straightforward, you would mark the T1-General as a Terminal (Final) Return in the blank space in the Top Right Corner of the T1-General, Page 1. and supply the Date of Death, along with supporting proof (a copy of the Certificate of Death is sufficient, and which does NOT need to be a Certified True Copy sworn before a Notary).

In the case of a tax preparation using either Profile or TurboTax, there is a Blank Space on the Top Right hand corner of the T1-General, Page 1, which is intended to route various other filings properly: Pre- & Post-Bankruptcy, which are usually done through a Trustee, and Partial Returns, Short Returns, Non-Resident Returns and Terminal Returns which are the purview of CA's, CFTA's, CGA's, CMA's and Tax Preparers. This advises the Canada Revenue Agency ("CRA") which section ("§.00.00") if the Income Tax Act is being applied to the return being filed, ensuring that the return is routed to the relevent department.

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.
