Is principal residence Form T2091 required to be paperfiled separately if I am net-filing return? Form instructions say to keep form in case (CRA) ask to see it later?

Form T2091 does not appear to be available with TurboTax Standard. 

The instructions on Form T2091 say " If you are filing electronically, keep this form in case we ask to see it later.  If you are filing a paper return, you must complete, sign, and attach this form to your return."

If we are filing our T1 electronically using net-file, does this mean we only have to complete the form separately (using the form on CRA's website) and report the gain (if any) on Line 158 of T1 Schedule 3, then keep the completed Form T2091 in case CRA asks for it later, but that we do NOT need to submit it in paper to CRA separately?


You will keep the form but not required to send in. If CRA contacts you and requires to view it, then you will need to send it in.

If you are completing your return electronically you will complete the form on the TurboTax software

If you are in TurboTax Online, click the Find icon and search for “prin”. Select Principal Residences from the list and click Go. This you will complete and it is the T2091.

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.
