I have used Autofill function seperately for husband wife and the data got duplicated. How to correct this? ( instead of 1 T4 it is showing twice)

I think you have two options. If these are clients you had prior to 2018 then the easiest approach may be to delete the 2018 files altogether for this husband and wife. Then just carryforward the 2017 data to start the process all over again and just autofill once for either spouse. Note that CRA automatically identifies both applicable SIN accounts and autofills both.

If that is not a useful approach, then you'd have to go into each slip module and delete the duplicate entry for T4s, T5s, etc. Pay particular attention to the RRSP file to make sure that the annual limits have not been changed and that extra premiums have not been included by the autofill process.

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.
