Finding the XML transmitted to the CRA last year
If you can't carry forward your slips return from the prior year, you can use the XML file created by your old software for transmitting to the CRA to populate a current-year TaxCycle return with the issuer and recipient information.
Depending on the software package you used last year, the file is saved in different place:
- In TaxCycle, the XML files that are transmitted are only saved temporarily when you go to transmit the return. To find the temporary file, go through the filing process and click the Transmit Now link. Then, copy the path from the left side of the dialog box and open it in Windows Explorer. When you see the file, copy it and past it to some other location on your computer.
- ProFile® FX saves the XML file for the return with the same file name except the extension in the default directory for your FX files. If you don't know the path for this directory, check in Options > Environment > File.
- In Taxprep® Forms and Cantax® FormsMaster, you can discover the path to the XML file from the window that opens when you file a slips return.
