Since you’re reporting an amount of 2015 reserve for dispositions before November 13, 1981 on the T2017 page, you won’t be able to NETFILE this return.

How do I fix this?

Unfortunately, if you’re reporting a 2015 reserve amount for the disposition of a capital property that occurred before November 13, 1981, you won’t be able to NETFILE your return. The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) requires that you mail-in your return. To do this:

  1. Click the FILE tab.

  2. Click the Mail-in Version button next to the return you need to mail to the CRA.

  3. A PDF copy of your return will download to your computer. Once the download is complete, you can print and mail it to the applicable tax centre.
