I reported sale of publicly traded shares in the capital gains section and the full amount of my capital gain is included as income. Shouldn't it be 50% of the gain?

You're right only half that capital gain is taxable, and when you look at the Detailed Tax Summary, you should only see 50% of your entry on Line 127. 

You might want to give our Support Team a call and they can actually have a look at your return to see why this is happening. Please follow the instructions below to reach an agent who can assist you with this.

Did you use the CRA AutoFill service to import your tax information? If "Yes", was their any T5008 slips imported?

Yes, I use AutoFill but the disposition was not on any tax slips so no information would have been imported.  I entered the information in the capital gains section with proceeds and ACB (there were no costs).  The system added the whole amount of the gain to income.  I thought only half of the capital gain is taxable.
