Is anyone else having issues with UCC benefits being claimed on the eligible dependent? I got a returned e-file because of this issue.

E-file returned claiming Failed. CRA: The claim for the Federal amount for an eligible dependent at Field 305 of Schedule 1 exceeds the maximum allowable.

When you elect to transfer the UCCB from a single parent to an eligible dependant, CRA requires you to include the total amount of the UCCB received in the dependant's net income so that the amount at Line 305 is reduced by the amount of UCCB received. The claim will be $10,527 less the UCCB received.

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.
