How can I get a T1final return to efile?

This is the first year I have been using Profile.  In the past I have used Taxprep and I have never had a problem efiling a T1 Final Return.  In Profile I keep getting the error that it is a deceased return and cannot be efiled.  Is there any way to efile a T1 Final (Terminal) return in Profile?


According to CRA's efile exclusions posted at and on Profile (F4 efile) it is written that you cannot efile if: "The taxpayer died prior to the current tax year. Early filed and Elective deceased returns also remain as exclusions". So if the taxpayer died IN the current tax year (ie 2014 at this time) you should be able to efile the return. If you cannot perhaps you are attempting to claim credits a deceased person cannot claim such as GSTc or CTB or OTB. Check your audit messages (Cntl F9) and clear out the issues

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.
