New FDSC - First-time Donor's Super Credit - Profile unable to accommodate this formula??

We see that CRA has announced a new First-time Donor's Super Credit for donations up to $1000.  First-time donors (haven't donated to an eligible charity in the last 5 years) who donated in 2013 after March 20, will qualify for an additional 25% credit.

However, I don't see in 2013 Profile Donations or S9 where the First-Time Donor can be selected and the calculation of the additional 25% credit can be calculated.

Surely we don't have to rely on CRA to flag all taxpayers who make charitable donations so they can look up the last 5 years to see whether the TP or spouse have not made any charitable donations, thus qualifying for the Super Credit???

Anyone have any info on this?

Thanks kindly.

I have version 2013.3.5, there is a section for FDSC on the bottom of the Schedule 9 where you click a checkbox and then enter in amounts in line 343 to multiply by the 25% super donations rate

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.
