I believe you are asking to prepare the returns as family using ProFile software. Here is the what you need to do:
1. Prepare the return for the couple. 2. Add the dependants information on the "Dependant" worksheet in the couple's return. 3. Save the return for the couple. 3. Prepare each dependant's return in ProFile and save. 4. With all the returns (Couple's and Dependants) open in ProFile do a "File|Save-as". 5. On the "Save-as" dialog make sure that the tabs for all family members are displayed (for example, father, mother , son and daughter) to link the returns as family. 6. Click "Save" to save the returns linked as family. 7. To maintain the family link from now on, close the returns as family by clicking "File" and "Close Family" (closing the returns individually will break the family link).
Hope the above helps. If you need additional assistance please call our toll-free support line at 1 800 452 9970 for help.
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.
