Profile will transpose the information according from T2202 form. In a Ontario resident return, information from T2202/Tl11 goes to S11(federal) and ONS11 provincial.

Answer: 2015 and 16 are straight forward, In a Quebec return, Please start with completing the T2202/Tl11 form. Information will go to S11(federal) and TP1T(provincial). Tp1T will show how much is being used and carried forward to next year.

For 2017: In general, CRA wants you to use the provincial forms based on where you resided Dec 31, 2017. From the student guide (

"Which forms book should you use? Generally, you have to use the forms book for the province or territory where you resided on December 31. If you were living in a province or territory other than the one you usually reside in, use those for your usual province or territory of residence. For example, if you usually reside in Ontario, but you were going to school in Alberta, you would use the forms book for Ontario. If you resided in Quebec on December 31, use the forms book for residents of Quebec to calculate your federal tax only. You will also need to file a provincial income tax return for Quebec. "

So for 2017, you may have to move carry forward amounts from TP1T to ONS11 if they moved and resided in Ontario on Dec 31,2017. Please confirm this part with CRA and notify them on the move as well. Hope that helps in getting you started.

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.
