I am trying to e-file a T1 return, and I am getting an error message regarding the SFD (selected financial data). I have checked the information and all the data is entered correctly.

The return contains a rental schedule, a T5013 (partnership income) slip, as well as a business statement. I have checked everything suggested, it all seems to be in order.

This is a generic message that may be due to incomplete account number on T2125 or any of the other self employment forms such as T2042, T1163 etc. or rental schedule T776. Also, this maybe on a T5013 slip reporting partnership income with just gross partnership income figure or incomplete partnership account number, tax shelter number, industry code etc.

On the Rental schedule, check if the address of the rental property is in a country other than Canada. If yes, change the province and postal code to the taxpayer's address postal code and province; the return will go through,

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.
