Where do I find the ACB for the 1994 T664 Election to report a capital gain on property owned at end of Feb 22/94 that I prepared in 1994?

I believe Profile keeps the ACB that I elected on, using F4 I cannot find where?


If you have authorization, check your client's CRA file. Their records will give you the capital gains and the deduction claimed, but not the ACB. I assume you are looking for the revised ACB after the election was made. It may be a matter of going back to the previous accountant for information if this taxpayer was not your client back in 1994. If have written about this several times, as a business columnist, that the details you are looking for is something that people should keep "forever", and not just the six-year period that CRA specifies.

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.
