QuickBooks Online Accountant Pro Tax carry forward

SOLVEDby QuickBooks3Updated February 05, 2024

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.

  1. Select your module in Pro Tax.
  2. Find the return you want to carry forward.
  3. Navigate to the View return dropdown in the Action column and select Carry forward:
