Where do I indicate that the return is for a deceased person that passed away in Feb of 2017? the 2 questions on the information page do not seem to be applicable.

As mentioned in question, the deceased person passed away in Feb of 2017. Last years software simply asked the question "Is this return for a deceased person"? You answered yes and put in the date.

Hello Edith.steel,

Thank you for using Profile Live Community. In 2016 module, Date of Death is located under Date of Birth, which is different from 2015 T1 module that Date of Death was under the question: "If taxpayer is deceased, enter date of death yyyy/mm/dd."

I hope this would be helpful.

Thank you.

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.
