profile is suggesting I claim the older child the uccb altough the $1,200 is for the younger. It says it is not eligible for e-file.

my client is single and has two children, one is under 6 and the other one is older.  Profile suggests the uccb should be added to the younger child but the older child should be claimed as eqilvalent to spouse.  Is that allowed?  It says it is not eligible for e-file.

Answer

It will be done by default, if you do not assign.
The older child should be used to claim the credit: amount for an eligible dependant, because the youngest child has an income of $1,200, and therefore the credit will be reduced by the UCCB.
The above is not creating an error in order to e-file a tax return.


Now, if you are not able to e-file the tax return, is because, either:

1) There is a service interruption with e-filing service and is shut down,
2) There is something with the file that is creating an error, such as social insurance number, address, date of birth or name,
3) It is a previous year such as 2012, that we cannot e-file anymore

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.
