The EFILE the T1013 for this taxpayer… option is not available under the EFILE menu in either the 2011 or 2010 T1/TP1 modules. Consequently, you cannot transmit form T1013: Authorizing or Cancelling a Representative electronically from ProFile. This option was turned off to allow for the rollover to 2011 T1 EFILE to which it is attached.
However, the T1013 form has been updated to the 2011 version and the barcode will appear on the form when it is printed. Thus, you may submit the T1013 by mail to CRA for processing.
This electronic filing option will be reactivated in an upcoming EFILE release."
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.
