Good morning I used the online version to file my 2016 tax return and I am not sure how I missed filing my wife's return. I now need to file a return for her and would like to know if I can add her to my return or if I need to start a complete new return? Thanks *****: What's the brand/model/Operating System (OS) of your computer?

I am using Windows 7

Accountant's Assistant: When did you purchase your computer? What troubleshooting have you tried?

The computer is working fine. I would like to know how to add my wife's tax return to my 2016 tax return that I filed earlier this year.

You do not want to file a separate return for your wife.

You want to make an adjusting to your return adding your wife and her information.

There are two ways you can file an adjustment to your income tax return:

1) By Internet: You can make changes to your income tax return using the online My AccountService from the CRA. Once you are in My Account, you simply click on the Change My Returnoption and then enter and submit any changes to your most recent income tax return or returns from the previous two years. Once you select Submit, your changes will be sent to the CRA.

2) By Mail: You can complete and print a T1-Adjustment form and mail it into the CRA. If you choose to submit your adjustment request via mail you will need to include the receipts or supporting documents for the changes you wish to make & the supporting documents for your original claim (if applicable), in addition to the completed adjustment request.

See the following: https://turbotax.intuit.ca/tips/change-filed-tax-return-703

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank you and best regards,

Barb

I filed my taxes this year on Turbo Tax and erroneously
I filed my taxes this year on Turbo Tax and erroneously selected a tax credit which required a paper filing of form 8885. Subsequently, I discovered I was not eligible for that particular credit. I then filed an Amended tax return taking it off. However, have since gotten correspondence from them asking for the form 8885 to be filed and it says to not file an amended tax return. The correspondence says that the tax refund will be reduced if they do not received the required form and is what I want to happen but I still have not received the refund. Is there anything further I can do to remedy this issue? … read more
