Understanding the Flow

  1. The user enters Slips into ProFile.
  2. The user navigates to the FTC form and enters the country.
  3. The user reviews the CRA FTC forms (T2209/T2036); they are already automatically populated, based on the FTC form in step 2 above.
  4. The credit flows automatically to the S1 (federal)/[provincial]428 form).

Frequently asked questions
