Why can not efile single client return claiming her 87 yrs old disabled Mother?

 The dependant mother has T4AP and T4A(OAS) and approval for disability tax credit.

Error 1: The claim for federal amount for an eligible dependant at field 305 of schedule 1 exceeds the maximum allowable

Error 2: the claim for the amount for an eligible dependant at field 5816 of provincial form 428 differs from maximum alloable

Answer

Based on the error response, I suspect that the mother's OAS and CPP ( her line 236) exceeds both $11,635(Fed) and the corresponding Provincial amount.  She is not able to claim an amount on line 305 of Schedule 1.  She is not an eligible dependent. The mother must apply the disability amount to her own income first and if she does need it all the excess may be transferred to your client. You client should also be able to claim the caregiver amount.

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.
