T2 Pro Tax to Pro Tax Carryforward

Carry forward a client’s prior year corporate tax return in Pro Tax T2.


Update: T2 forms

Two new sections are added in T2 to calculate “dividend refund” and “refundable dividend tax on hand (RDTOH)” for tax years that begin after 2018, reflecting 2018 Federal Budget changes.

For tax years that begin after 2018 the two new balances (eligible RDTOH and the non-eligible RDTOH, respectively) will replace the existing RDTOH balance. Similarly, the dividend refund now consists of eligible dividend refund and non-eligible refund after 2018.


Update: Schedule 3 – Dividends Received, Taxable Dividends Paid, and Part IV Tax Calculations

Part 1 to Part 3 of the Schedule 3 are updated to reflect the 2018 Federal Budget changes on RDTOH and dividend refund tax rules applicable to tax years that begin after 2018.

T2 Form Updates: Capital Cost Allowance
Schedule 8 and AS13 (Alberta) have been updated to include the Accelerated Investment Incentive presented during the 2018 Federal Fall Economic Statement. This incentive will provide deduction up to three times the amount of tax depreciation that would otherwise apply.


T2 Form Updates: Ontario – Schedule 500 – Ontario Corporation Tax Calculation
On November 15, 2018, Ontario’s Minister of Finance presented the 2018 Ontario Economic Outlook and Fiscal Review. Ontario will not parallel the 2018 Federal budget measure that phases out the $500,000 small business deduction limit for CCPCs that earn between $50,000 and $150,000 of passive investment income in a taxation year, for taxation years beginning after 2018. In Schedule 500, Ontario small business deduction calculation has been updated to reflect this change.
