TaxCycle T3 is ready for filing T3 and TP-646 returns for 2021 with the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) and Revenu Québec.

We are still awaiting EFILE certification for T3RET and T3RCA returns. Please file these returns on paper until we release a version of TaxCycle with T3 EFILE certification.

You may continue to file T3 and NR4 slips, as well as T2000 and T3P returns, using the CRA Internet File Transfer (XML) website.

Québec TP-646 returns may only be filed on paper. RL-16 slips can be filed online.

This release also includes the following customer requests:

  • Added new fields for lines 300 through 350 and beginning/ending adjusted cost base (ACB) to show the totals for the partnership for All partners in the relevant sections on T5013Partner and RL15Partner slips.
  • Updated the At-risk section of the RL15Partner to automatically bring in amounts entered from the T5013Partner.
  • Expanded the Capital Account section on the T5013Partner to populate partner drawings from the Schedule 1 amounts for salaries and wages, cost of products consumed by the partner and personal expenses paid by the partnership. This includes a new line for recording the return of capital and a new expanding table for other partner drawings, as needed.
  • Added a Capital Account section to the RL15Partner, with amounts shared from the federal capital account.
  • Changed line 410 on the T5013Partner and line P on the RL-15Partner to a calculated field when using the manual allocation method.
  • Added new summaries for T5013 Schedule 50 and ACB, and TP-600 Schedule A and ACB, named S50Summary and TPASummary, respectively. You can enter data directly on these summaries and customize the columns in the same way you can on the Slips summary.
  • Added boxes 26 (at-risk amount) and 43 (return of capital) to the RL-15 slips summary.
  • Added a review message that triggers when the partner identification number only contains zeros.
  • Added a section to calculate ACB on withdrawal and related deemed capital gains (losses) of a partner for the following:
    • Dissolution of the partnership. This updates all partners automatically when you select Final return before dissolution on the Info worksheet.
    • Retired partner (income interest).
    • Retirement of a partner (residual interest).
  • Fixed the carryforward of eligible limited loss balances for limited partners.

TaxFolder-Related Changes

The following change will only work AFTER the next TaxFolder update, expected within the next week.

A new check box on the Printer and PDF Output Options dialog box allows you to invite a new client to TaxFolder.

  • Check this box to send an email invitation to a new client, asking them to activate their new TaxFolder account.
  • Uncheck this box to prevent the email invitation and only send an email requesting signature or approval of a document.
  • This check box works together with a Notification setting coming in the next update of TaxFolder. Both must be enabled for new clients to receive an email invitation to create an account in TaxFolder, triggered by a request from TaxCycle.

This change responds to feedback from TaxFolder users asking for a way to disable invitation emails for clients who only need to sign or approve a document sent from TaxCycle.
