Carry forward is a service that allows existing client information from previous year’s returns to be “carried forward” into a new return, saving time and effort for tax preparers. The carry forward process imports personal information such as names and street addresses, plus detailed tax information such as Undepreciated Capital Cost (UCC), unused RRSP deductions, and so on. Users can carry forward the previous year’s return or a return prepared using a competitor’s product.
- In Pro Tax select your module.
- Find the return you want to carry forward.
- Go to the View return dropdown in the Action column and select Carry forward.
