Why does refund change when DOB entered

Answer

Hi All

I will add here that Intuit ProFile recalculates the return after each entry, so, that result (balance owing/refund) will change throughout the preparation of the return; the result after all entries and review of audit message is what is important.

It is True ProFile depends on the birthdate to determine eligibility for various credits and is important for that reason. Also birth date is required for Canada Pension Plan(CPP) calculations. ProFile does not know how to calculate CPP contributions from employment income without the birthdate. If no birth date is entered the whole contribution shows as an overpayment until a birth dat is entered.

Hope this helps

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.
