Release Highlights


We originally released version 11.1.46179.0 on February 25, 2022 with the changes below.

Upon enabling the automatic update on March 2, 2022, we released version 11.1.46201.0 with the following changes:

  • If you downloaded the version 11.1.46179.0 and wish to transmit T3RET, T3RCA or T1135, you must upgrade to the latest version
  • Removed the Preview watermark from all farming statements, including the T2042, T1163, T1164, T1273, T1274 and the new T2043. For clients with farms in more than one province, the EFILE exclusion for multiple jurisdictions also applies to the T2043.
  • Corrected an issue in T1 returns where the S14 and client letters showed an estimated Climate action incentive payment (CAIP) for the spouse if the calculation included amounts for qualified dependants. We also added separate calculations for dependants in shared custody to match the draft legislation posted by the Department of Finance in the fall.
  • Corrected an issue in T5013 returns where the calculation in box 113 Return of Capital on the T5013Partner slip (box 43 on the RL15Partner) was overwriting to NIL any amounts entered in earlier TaxCycle versions.
  • Added rounding to T5013 S50 box 15 to fix critical a review message that you could not resolve even though the amounts matched.
  • Changed a review message for RL-15 box 24c (Paid-up capital – Member corporation’s share of total assets) to a Caution message to allow sign-off when there is a NIL allocation.
  • Corrected an issue where the T2202 slip incorrectly included the Filer account number in box 15 for student copies of slips. 

A week later, we released another update to resolve the following issues:

  • T2043 Tax Credit Included in Income Twice. The return of fuel charge proceeds to farms tax credit (claimed on the T2043) is no longer included in income twice. The income inclusion was doubling when the taxpayer had a farming statement for a farm they owned 100%and one for a farm that was a partnership. This issue affected both the T2042 and the T1273/4 farming statements. 
  • T3RET EFILE Fails for First-Time Filers. TaxCycle now allows transmission when you indicate a copy of the trust documents or will, and a list of assets at death, were included with the T3APP. We also added a warning message that prevents transmission if the account number is blank and you choose the Attached to T3RET option.
  • TaxCycle not calculating subtotal on the S1M in T3 returns if you entered an exchange rate on the form. We resolved this issue for 2019, 2020 and 2021 T3 returns.

New! T3 EFILE for T3RET and T3RCA

Status of T1 Forms (Revised)

The CRA has approved the new T2043, Return of Fuel Charge Proceeds to Farmers Tax Credit, in TaxCycle. We removed the preview watermark from it and other farming statements (T2042, T1163, T1164, T1273 and T1274).

Returns containing multiple jurisdiction forms (T2203) remain in preview and are excluded from EFILE. This includes farms in more than one province and the new T2043 form.

All other T1 forms are final.

Customer Requests

  • T1—Added quarterly breakdown of payments for the Climate Action Incentive (CAI) to the 2021 client and joint client letters. (As requested in this topic in
  • T3—Added a new Remittance template to provide details of a payment to the CRA made by cheque.
  • Template Editor—Added new {{ upper(...) }} and {{ lower(...) }} functions to transform text to uppercase or lowercase when pulled from a field in TaxCycle. For example, {{upper(CurrentClient.Info.ID.FirstName)}} prints the client's first name in uppercase in the template regardless of how it shows in the field on the form.

Resolved Issues

  • Batch EFILE—Fixed batch transmissions from the Client Manager for 2021 T1 returns.
  • T5013—Fixed an issue with RL-15 box 14, Gross Income, and related boxes 14-1 through 14-6. TaxCycle was reporting the partner’s share of gross income instead of the gross income for the partnership.
