Release Highlights


We originally released version 13.1.53134.0 on May 13, 2024, with the changes below. On May 14, 2024, we released version 13.1.53204.0 to resolve the following issues:

Rollover of T3/TP-646 to 2024

The new module for TaxCycle T3 allows you to begin data entry for 2024 federal and Québec trust income tax and information returns. Please note the following:

  • You can carry forward 2023 T3 returns from TaxCycle. Competitor carry forwards will be available in a future release.
  • You can use this module to file T3 trust returns with fiscal year ends in 2024.
  • The government forms are the 2023 forms updated to include 2024 indexed amounts and budget changes announced or estimated based on the information we have at this time. A review message appears on the year-end date field and in a bulletin at the top of the form. Screen Capture: Banner in TaxCycle T3
  • This module permits the transmission of T3 slips through the CRA Internet File Transfer (XML) and the Transmission of Québec Relevés.
  • T3 EFILE is available for the 2024 year.

New! Payments Worksheet

This release adds a new Payments Worksheet to the 2024 T3 module. The Payments Worksheet allows you to manage and enter payment information for your client invoice without unlocking the Billing worksheet.Screen Capture: Payments worksheet

  • The Billing worksheet now includes a link to the Payments Worksheet where the payment details used to be.
  • TaxCycle adds a “Paid” or “Overpaid” watermark to the Payments and Billing worksheets and the Client Invoice (CInvoice) template if the balance owing is zero or negative.

We will add the Payments Worksheet to other 2024 TaxCycle modules in a future release.

T3 Updates

Engagement Worksheet

  • Removed the Language of correspondence field as it already exists on the Info worksheet.
  • Removed the Client Letter type field.
  • Added a Client since field to track how long the client has been a client of your firm. We will link this field to the Client Manager in a future release.
  • Added Salutation fields to determine the name TaxCycle will use in templates. If you override the text in this field, TaxCycle will capture the change in all relevant templates so you don’t have to edit each template individually.
    • If you enter a Title, TaxCycle will use the formal address (Title LastName)
    • If you do not enter a title but enter a Preferred name (formerly Nickname), TaxCycle will use the informal address with the preferred name. 
    • If you do not enter a title or preferred name, TaxCycle will use the informal address with the First name.
    • TaxCycle will use the Last name/organization name if none of the above applies.

Info Worksheet

  • Added an option to select a single trustee or multiple trustees as Authorized person. This allows you to enter multiple trustees and still designate only the first trustee as the authorized person for forms and templates.
  • Added phone and email fields for the second and third trustee for files with multiple trustees. 
  • Reorganized the Trustee and Address sections of the worksheet.


  • Updated the salutation to use the new salutation field from the Engagement worksheet.
  • All French templates now use “Bonjour” as the standard salutation.
  • Standardized all template salutations and email subject lines.

Other Updates

  • T2 and Forms module—We made the following changes to improve workflow and help locate related authorization forms when filing Special Elections and Returns (SERs) forms by paper or electronically:
    • Removed the T183SER section from the bottom of each SERs form.
    • Each SERs form now has a distinct T183SER form associated with it. See the SERs in TaxCycle T2 and SERs in TaxCycle Forms help topics for a list of available forms.
  • T5013—Added support for importing Excel® templates using drag and drop to align with similar functionality in other TaxCycle modules.
