Release Highlights

Status of T1 Forms

The CRA has approved the multiple jurisdiction forms (T2203) in TaxCycle T1. You may now EFILE T1 returns containing these forms.

You may now also transmit the following returns: 

  • Non-residents of Canada filing a return under Section 116
  • Emigrant returns (those who have departed Canada in the tax year)

The CRA had intended to allow certain returns for deemed residents to be transmitted through EFILE for the 2023 taxation year. However, due to unforeseen circumstances, this initiative has been deferred to a future year.

All other 2023 T1 forms were finalized in previous releases.

Forms Updates

  • Added additional review messages for exemptions claimed in Parts 4, 5 and 6 of the UHT-2900 as requested by the CRA. You can claim one exemption in each part.
