Banking Information. If someone files last 8 years returns together.

Do you include the banking information in each return or just the first and last return. What if they are not assessed at the same time. Just wondering how everyone does it.

Also, I would like to THANK everyone from the bottom of my heart to share your time and knowledge to help fellow tax prepares out. God Bless you ALL.

Stevie, I can only speak for myself, but most of us in the live community are happy to help so your expression of appreciation is welcomed by all.

You have an unusual situation and to be honest I really don't know how CRA would handle it. I have filed a whole slew of tax returns for a delinquent filer in the past, but don't recall anyone providing a direct deposit request in the same batch of years. This may annoy CRA (or not), but I'd be inclined to just include the DD request in each of those eight years with the exception of any years in which a balance might be owing. It's only a couple of minutes of extra work per year, but might keep the client happy.

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.
