why am i getting this error ? Unfortunately at this time, this is as far as you can go... We've made changes to our tax forms to incorporate the latest tax rules from the


There are some new rules regarding Split Income (TOSI) and the CRA is now requiring us to ask a new mandatory question regard this issue. This question was added to TurboTax Online on Feb. 7th, so if you started your return before then, you likely went past the point that the TOSI question was asked. Run through the review again (Click “Review” and then “Get Started” on the left-hand side menu). You should see an error regarding Split Income. Click “Fix”, and it will give you the chance to answer ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ to the TOSI question. Click “Continue” to save and go back to the review.

If you didn’t get any split income that falls under the new rules, and answer ‘No’, you should now be able to download a pdf of your return that you can print to paper file. CRA's NETFILE Service for the 2018 tax year will open on February 18th, 2019, so you will not be able to NETFILE until then.

If you answer ‘Yes’, then you must wait until the forms are finalized (later this month) to print or NETFILE, as you will need to fill out a new form which will not be available until the CRA gives up the final ones.

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.
