Last year I filed my tax return and then realized that I never claimed income for my self-employment, for which no income tax is deducted. How do I add that this year?

I had approximately $7000 in respite/nannying work that I didn't claim last year, but I know that you can change returns for up to 10 years afterwards. How do I go about doing that on this year's return?

Since you had income during the previous tax year, it should be reported in 2013.
If you already filed for 2013, you should file a T1-Adj. for 2013,attaching any paystubs or failing that a note explaining the adjustment. Don't resubmit a 2013 return.

If you did not yet file a 2013 return, you can still do that now.

Thanks for the response! Yes, it was for the tax return I filed in early 2014 which would have been for the 2013 tax year. I can only estimate how much I made, because at times, I was paid in cash. I don't have record of any earnings as it was for respite care and nannying for a few families I know. I want to make sure I am being truthful, so I want to amend it. Can I print that form from a website somewhere? Also, should I proceed and file my return for this year as usual? Or should l wait until this is fixed?

Go ahead with your 2014 filing. You can send the 2013 adjustment anytime.
I suggest wait until your 2014 tax is assessed.

You should have a pdf archive version of your 2013,return.
If you don't, then login to Turbotax 2013 and access your return, download the pdf archive.
( assume you used Turbotax on-line 2013).

When you generate the T1-adj. for 2013, attach a spreadsheet or note with your best estimate
of earnings, which you can add on line 104.

Your 2013 taxes will be reassessed and you may be directed to pay a balance due to CRA.
