This version contains most of the forms released by the tax authorities for the 2018 taxation year. These forms were approved and allow you to file income tax returns for taxpayers who do not require the forms listed in the "Calculations and Forms Not Available or Under Review" section of the Release Notes.

Due to its early release date, this version is not EFILE approved.

Here is a brief summary of the main changes:

    Delete buttons have been added in the four tax scenarios worksheets (SCENARIOS, QSCENARIOS, CPL SCEN and QCPL SCEN). These buttons allow you to reset data of a scenario transferred in a column.

  • Schedule 14 – Climate Action Incentive (Jump Code: 14)
    This form is used to calculate the new “Climate Action Incentive” tax credit. This credit applies to eligible individuals whose province of residence on December 31 is Ontario, Saskatchewan, Manitoba or New Brunswick.

  • Transmission of amended TP1 returns
    Personal Taxprep Classic 2018 v.2.0 will allow for the electronic transmission of amended TP1 returns.
    As for the federal returns, when you use this service to transmit a return to Revenu Québec, the program will transmit an entire TP1 return reflecting the desired changes and not Form TP-1.R, Request for an Adjustment to an Income Tax Return (Jump Code: QTP1R).
For more information with regards to these changes, consult the Release Notes.
