Streamline family returns
When preparing T1s for a family, it’s all about efficiency. Cantax T1Plus integrates the family’s returns, so you can:
Enter data only once. With Cantax T1Plus, enter the dependant’s information, and it’s automatically populated
into the appropriate fields in the taxpayer’s and spouse’s file. If a dependant is not filing a return, simply enter their
information into their parents’ returns to calculate credits and deductions without a separate data file. So easy - no
jumping back and forth between returns to find information.
Save them tax money. Cantax uses the entire family’s information to calculate the optimal tax situation,
automatically. They’ll save tax dollars, and you’ll save time.
Make next year easier. Sometimes things change, sometimes they don’t. No problem. There’s no need to re-key last
year’s information. It gets carried forward automatically. And when kids grow up, simply uncouple the dependant’s return
from the family’s. It’s easy for you and your clients, this year, and next… and next… and next…
No fuss, no fiddle optimal pension income splitting
With one click, Cantax T1Plus shows you where to split pension income for maximum tax savings. It calculates a
pension income allocation that will generate the maximum current year tax savings based on the data in the return.
Even when you’re working at peak capacity in the heart of tax season, you can be sure that you are saving your clients tax
dollars. Your customers will appreciate the savings, and you’ll appreciate the ease.
