Form T1135 - inability to add more than 3 lines!!! Is this being addressed?

I find it incredible that the TurboTax software for this form does not allow for supplementary lines to be added. I cannot imagine that there are many individuals, who are required to submit the form, that have have less than 4 lines of information!  

I was just on the telephone with the CRA (45 minute wait!) and was told that my options are to file the return by mailing it in and including the complete T1135 or file the return electronically and mail in the T1135. 

However, the comment was that mailing the T1135 form will constitute a revision to the electronically submitted return! I don't necessarily see  a problem with this since it won't change the return. However this whole process is a serious pain! 

I have been using TurboTax and the predecessor software for many years but perhaps it's time to look to make a change. 

Someone also commented that they were able to separately file the T1135 on a government website but I cannot find where that can be done. Does anyone know how this can be done?

That answer doesn't work anymore since "support" has moved.

Form T1135 - inability to add more than 3 lines!!! Is this being addressed?

To get around the issue of errors (and unable to Netfile the rest of my tax documents) because there are not enough lines, I filled in the T1135 by entering one line with "OTH" as the country code and included the total of all the foreign amounts. I sent in CRA's fillable T1135 PDF form (allows addition of rows needed) by mail and did not Netfile the T1135 for 2021 through TurboTax. 

 

This issue has not been addressed by TurboTax as of May 2, 2022. It caused me to have to amend my 2020 T1135 through the voluntary disclosure program (VDP). After Nefiling 2020 taxes, I later realized that entering the top 3 countries only applies when using Part A of the form. For Part B, the amounts for each country have to be filled in. That is very problematic for everyone who requires more than 3 lines. It creates extra work for CRA as well and I'm surprised they haven't demanded TT fix the problem. They should at least put a big note on the screen saying they can't provide more than 3 lines in Part B and provide some way of getting around the issue rather than forcing users to make up workarounds. In one post, someone said they clicked a box that said they had no foreign holdings to get around it. Yikes!!!
