Yes, boys and girls, it's Tax Time in Canada!
Nothing quickens the pulse of a vigorous Canadian more than this.
Not Spring, not the Stanley Cup play-offs, not even Roll-Up-The-Rim. Yeah, tax-time!
My pet peeve today is Revenue Canada's, excuse me, the Canada Revenue Agency's, T3 form.
Here's the order in which the boxes appear on the actual form: 24 - 25 -26 - 13 - 18 - 10 - 11 -12 -21 -22 -23
Here's the order in which QuickTax processes them: 25 - 18 - 19 - 15 - 11 -13 - 14 -20 - 16
If you click on the QuickTax "Other Boxes" tab, a bonus box appears - box 17 !!!
The first box that appears on my T3 slip is box 24. Where do I put it?
According to QuickTax, "Boxes 24, 26, 10 and 12 do not need to be entered."
On my slip, all of these boxes have values in them. Not needed. Most of the other boxes have nothing.
Then why do we have them?!
