Can I add a dependent to my 2018 tax return with refile to claim tax credit transferred for that dependent? I already received my 2018 NOA.

Answer

Yes, you are able to use ReFile to add a dependant to your 2018 income tax return.  Please see the following FAQ for more information.

ReFILE is a Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) service that enables you to electronically submit changes to a tax return that you filed previously using NETFILE.

Note for Québec residents: TurboTax does not have the ReFILE service available for residents of Québec.

In TurboTax, the ReFILE service is available for the current tax year (2018) and the last tax year (2017). Note that for tax year 2017, there's a $5 service fee.

On the page in TurboTax that lists all of your tax returns, the ReFILE button appears only next to tax returns that are eligible for the ReFILE service.

We guide you through the steps necessary to make changes to your previously filed tax return and submit using ReFILE.

Restrictions: You can use ReFILE to submit only certain types of changes to your tax return. Some situations exclude you from using ReFILE. For more details, visit CRA’s page on conditions and exclusions for using ReFILE.

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.
