All AT1 returns filed for taxation years ending in 1998 and subsequent must be completed using the departmental 1998 And Subsequent Alberta Corporate Income Tax Return (AT1) and schedules or using certified tax preparation software that will produce the AT1 RSI format which is the only acceptable computer generated format. Corporations filing for taxation years ending in 1997 and prior must file using the 1997 AT1 package.

For 1999 and subsequent taxation years, a complete AT1 package consists of only the AT1 RSI (keying summary) and AT1 schedules. There is no requirement to file copies of the T2, T2 schedules or financial statements with the AT1 package.
