TaxCycle T1

Removal of Preview Watermark

With this release, the Preview watermark has been removed from most forms to allow you to mail any returns to CRA or Revenu Québec that are ready and which you do not want to or cannot transmit through EFILE.

Note: The following that still have the Preview watermark due to ongoing testing.

  • T2203: Provincial and Territorial Taxes for Multiple Jurisdictions
  • TP1, Schedule H: Tax Credit for Caregivers
  • TP-1029.8.61.64-V: Tax credit for Caregivers. This form is used when more than two people are claimed on Schedule H for any of the sections (overflow form).

New Form

  • TP-59.S: Expenses Related to Working Remotely Because of the COVID-19 Pandemic (This is the TP1 equivalent of federal form T777S.)

Electronic Submission of Authorization Requests

Electronic submission of authorization requests (formerly T1013) from TaxCycle T1 2019 and 2020 will require you update to this release in order to transmit any returns starting February 8th.
