I put dependent on dependent screen and would like to add the dependent's T4 , I don't seem to open the icon " family" next to the couple icon. So I couldn't enter the dependent's T4. Thanks for help.

How to put T4 for dependent while working on his parents return? do I have to create new return for him first? Then how all family members return link each other for the transferred credit purposes? Thank you for help



After adding the dependent information on the "Dependent" worksheet in the parent's return, you right-click on the SIN (Social Insurance Number) field for the dependent  to open up a shortcut menu.  From this list displayed after right-clicking select the option "Open Return for dependent XXX..." to display the dependent return on screen, open the T4 screen in the dependent's return and enter the information.

With the parents and dependent's returns open in ProFile at the same time, do a "Save As" making sure that all the three tabs display on the Save As dialog, click on Save to save all the three returns as "Family" and from now on the "Family" icon in ProFile will be active when returns are opened as Family.  Please remember to close Family return using "File\Close Family" not "File\Close" to maintainthe family link in tact.  Doing "File\Close" to close the dependent's return will break the family link.

If you still require help please call ProFile toll-free support line at 1 800 452 9970.

Thank you.

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.
