When I attempt to record selling a principal residence for an individual and his spouse ProFile creates 2 properties instead of one, creating several errors.

After I check box 1 on Schedule 3 and proceed to complete the S3 Principal residence detail, 2 properties with the same address appear on the S3 Schedule.  There is only one property being sold.

Answer

On the information page answer 'YES" I sold a principal residence on both spouses. Put the information for the Schedule 3 on one spouse only with 50% ownership. On the bottom of Both Schedule 3s click the #1 option if the property was their principal residence for the entire time. ( If you click on option 2 or 3 then you will have to do further calculations to figure out what part of the proceeds are exempt). The information you enter regarding the house will split 50/50 accordingly. If option 1 ( bottom of S3) applies for your clients, you will end up with info in the last section of S3 and the 1st page of the T2091.

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.
