About Transmitter numbers
ProFile FX module requires that a transmitter number be provided in order to transmit an XML file.
The XML file has a section called "T691", which acquires the MM number and builds a valid XML file for transmission to CRA.
Acquiring a Transmitter number
Use generic transmitter number MM555555 to file this return if you are filing only one return and do not have an existing Transmitter number.
Use the Transmitter number that the CRA assigned to you if you are filing more than one return. You can call the CRA at 1-800-665-5164 or visit the related CRA page to acquire a Transmitter number.
Review the CRA information page for further details on submissions.
