Based on other responses in this forum, I have entered foreign rental income under the rental income section. But this causes two concerns. One, there is no spot to enter foreign taxes paid. So I entered these under other expenses. BUT, I have no way of being certain that the Canadian government will give me credit for these taxes paid, especially since the foreign country is Brazil, with which Canada has a tax treaty. Two, I still had to enter the income for this foreign property in T1135. So I expect, that this means that this income is being entered twice. AND, there is no spot in the T1135 to enter foreign taxes paid either.
I have used UFile for a few years, and I don't think I've changed how I am entering my info. I have foreign rental income. In the past I have reported this as regular rental income under a "Rental income" section with income, expenses etc. broken down and reported in C$, and also as foreign rental income under "Foreign income & property" where I report the gross and net also in C$. I checked my 2011 return and that all seems good - if the income was say $10000, this is what is reported under rental income in the result summary. This year when I enter the same info it seems to be counting the income twice, once from the report under rental income, and once for foreign rental income, so under the result summary I see $20000 as rental income instead of $10000. Further investigation seems to indicate the problem is with the "Foreign business income entered as business income" line when I declare the foreign rental income. I had left this blank, which seems to then double the reported rental income. If I enter zero in this line or $10000, the rental income is only reported once. Am I doing this right? What should I be entering in this field? Thanks!
