Schedule 3 section 3 is confusing after entering one mutual fund T5 it doubles the Proceeds of Disposition at bottom in Box 131 & does so also for box 132 Why?

bottom of Schedule 3 section 3 text says see form T1170* See Supp. Schedule

why does Box 131 double the proceeds of Disposition for 1 Mutual Fund figure?

and in the gain or loss column it does double it again - Why?  so the end figures submitted on Pg 3 of Schedule 3 are in effect all doubled the actual amount of Loss and the Proceeds of Disposition for 1 Mutual Fund are also doubled - Why?

Have you inputted a T5008 slip as well as capital gains information? You only need to complete one or the other, not both.  Please check your Schedule 3 section 3 to see if there are two amounts in the table, including the bottom line that says See Supp. Schedule, which could explain why the totals are double the amounts you are expecting.  You can then go back and remove either the T5008 or the amounts entered directly on Schedule 3.

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.
