T1013 showing watermark after the T1 has been EFILED.
A change was implemented in ProFile version 2014.3.0 for the T1013 form.
After the T1013 has been EFILED, a watermark displays across the page, stating "Retain for your records. Do not forward to CRA". :
The T1013 can be EFILED regardless of whether the form has the watermark or not. However, the T1013 cannot be paper filed with this watermark. The watermark is to indicate that the T1013 has already been EFILED and should not be paper filed again.
If CRA is requesting a paper copy of the T1013, please contact EFILE Helpdesk Support for T1 Returns.
