I am trying to print a 2008 T2 and it will not print the T2 Bar Code - I get message Printer Not Activated, error code - 30. How do I fix it.


This error message is commonly associated with the ProFile PDF converter and indicates, if you are not specifically trying to print to the converter, that it is selected as the default Windows printer.

CRA will not accept a PDF copy of the return for filing, so you will need to change the default selection, in Windows Control Panel, to a physical printer for output.

Regarding the error message itself, generally this is solved by removing and re-installing the ProFile PDF converter.

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.
