305 - Eligible Dependent (Student) - not showing up - Schedule 5?

Recommended Posts

What am I missing?

 

I am the family head and have added a daughter as a dependent.  She is a student and earned less than $10,822 (Province=Sk) in income, but none of the remaining balance transferred to the parent under line 305.  Thus it does not match what I did on the paper forms. The income was entered for the daughter, but there is no schedule 5 to complete the calculation manually, and the program is not calculating and adding it automatically back to me, the parent.  Any suggestions on what I am missing?

 

Thanks for your replies,

To claim the eligible dependant amount, you must first create a file for your child as a dependant. In order to create this file, please follow these steps:


1- In the "Interview" screen, click on "Add a family member" in the "Family Members" section, located at the top left of the screen (just above the "QuikClik Navigator").


2- Then, on the page appearing to the right, select "Add a dependant".


Once your child's file has been created, and you meet the eligibility criteria (see the link at the bottom), UFile will make the claim for the eligible dependant amount automatically with no additional entries required.


If you have 2 or more children, UFile will claim the child that optimizes the eligible dependant amount. However, if you want to choose a specific child for this claim, please follow these steps:


1- In the "QuikClik Navigator" of the child's file, located on the left-hand side, click on "Controls".


2 - Then, on the page appearing on the right, select "Yes" to the question "Claim this dependant as the eligible dependant on federal Schedule 1 line 305?".


UFile will claim the eligible dependant amount on line 305 of Schedule 1 of the Federal return, and line 5816 of your provincial forms (other than Quebec, which does not have an equivalent claim).


For additional information on the eligible dependant amount, please consult this link:

Thanks for your reply.

I (single parent) did what you suggested, adding a dependent (student) who is over 18, that made only 8,060 in that year, less than the 10,822.  After completing the choices, and choosing to claim the dependent by me, the family head, I thought I would see the difference of about 2,700 shown in line 305. I re-entered everything, and still no luck with anything in 305 of my return.  As a test, I downloaded the free StudioTax and entered the same data, and it showed 2758.81 in line 305 of my return.   It seems a lot more complicated, showing all the forms, and a little more clunky interface than your program, but it seems to handle the dependent calculation as expected.  Any other thoughts on what I could try?  Thanks for your help.  If I can not figure this out, I think I will just file by paper reports.

I have the same problem,  child is reported as dependant,  under controls Do you wish to claim this child as the designated child for the working income tax benefit on schedule 6 of the parents return ?  I tried Let MaxBack decide &  Yes  - NO deductition appears on my tax return? 

 

Your notes indicate Schedule 1  so why does Ufileplus indicate sch 6 ?
