I am a tax preparer in Ontario and preparing taxes for clients who recently moved here from Quebec. One is self employed with the same type of business in both provinces. Can I find the schedules/forms that I need on Profile to complete this return?
Not sure what you are asking here..... If you are a tax preparer then you should know the answer.
Yes you can find the schedules you need in Profile.
Typically, the taxpayer's province of residence at December 31 of the year (i.e. 2012) for which you are filing taxes determines the tax rates for all personal income, so enter the address as at 2012/12/31then go to the T1 and start left clicking on the fields that require entry. (i.e. business income boxes 162 and 135, left clicking provides you options such as "T2125", "Self employ" and "T5013" (Business income stmt, Summary of business income (if more than one) and statement of partnership income, respectively)).
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:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
