On Pre and Post bankruptcy T1 returns for a self-employed, it looks like that Profile is calculating S8 incorrectly. The basic exemption of $3500 appears on each return

Each return (pre and post) have their own S.8 and based on the Robert Steele case, the CPP liability on self employed earnings are calculated accordingly and it looks Ok on the Pre return, however, on the Post return S.8 don't take into consideration that fact and calculated the CPP payable on the Post self employed earnings but with same $3500 exemption, which in fact is doubled($7000) because it was taken in consideration on the Pre return. The bankruptcy form in Profile is completed automatically, but S.8 is not synced with it and the final result is incorrect. Can someone explain this please?

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.
