Issue: ProFile fails to import data from the CRA

1. Determine if the return is coupled, or has any other returns linked to it.
2. If there are dependents linked to the return, remove them, import, and relink them.
3. If there is a spouse, determine if the preparer is authorized to import information for the spouse, and if the spouse have a valid SIN. In addition, determine if the spouse a Canadian resident.
4. If the answer to any of these questions above is no, uncouple the return and run AFR for the primary taxpayer again.
