What is your authority for suggesting that one enter the country code as "CAN" in 2014 transitional T1135 reporting method as the form suggests country basis for part 7

My chat with revenue canada suggests that  the 2 bullets in the following passage, applicable to part 7, mean (1) I can lump accounts together, or (2) I can treat accounts separately, but I still have to split it out on a country by country basis

 "The table for this category should be completed as follows: • all of the property held with a particular securities dealer or trust company should be aggregated on a country-by-country basis; • it is also acceptable to provide aggregate totals for each particular account on a country-by-country basis;"


In dealing with the T1135, it is recommended that a person go back to their investment company and request the documentation be provided.  Apparently they can provide this information without the struggle that the average taxpayer has to go through.

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
