My client came to Canada on 1 Jan 2018. I am trying to file his 1st year T1 and also claim the Climate Action Incentive BUT the efile failed. Anybody know why?

My client came to Canada on 1 Jan 2018 and became tax resident since then.  I am trying to file his 1st year T1 and also claim the Climate Action Incentive coz I believe he should qualify for CAI since he was a tax resident through the whole 2018 year.  However, the efile failed with the below message poped out: - 

ANYBODY KNOW WHY?  SHOULD THE NEW COMER WITH WHOLE YEAR TAX RESIDENT NOT CLAIM CAI?  THANK YOU!   

CRA error code: 

92330 : There are entries at field 449 and/or on the Schedule 14 for the climate action incentive and one of the following situations applies to your client's return: 

1) You have indicated this is a pre-bankruptcy return. Delete all entries as this claim is not allowed on a pre-bankruptcy return.

 2) You have indicated that your client is an immigrant to Canada in the tax year. Delete all entries as this claim is not allowed on an immigrant return. 

3) You have indicated that your client is deceased as of December 31 of the tax year. Delete all entries as this claim is not allowed on a subsection 70(1). 

4) According to the CRA's records, there is a date of death prior to April 1 in the year following the tax year for your client. Delete all entries as this claim is not allowed.

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.
