Spouse's net income

Recommended Posts

Hello -

My husband and I are trying to complete our tax returns and we can not figure out where to find the answer to the question "Net federal income of your spouse". This is not listed on our T4 slips - they only state our gross income. It says it's "line 236 of the return" but we only have line 236 from 2011's return. How do we calculate this amount for 2012 so we can each enter it for eachother when we fill out the interview?

 

Thanks!

If your spouse has already filed his or her tax return or is planning to file it alone, you must nonetheless take into account the income that he or she earned in the tax year when preparing your tax return. To do so, follow these steps:


1- In the "QuikClik Navigator", located on the left-hand side of the screen, select "Spouse interview type".


2- At the line "What information will you provide for your spouse?", the program will indicate by default in the drop-down menu "Complete information (recommended)". If your spouse has already filed his or her tax return or is planning to file it alone, then you must select from this drop-down menu the option "Net income only" and click on "Next" at the bottom of the page.


3- You must enter your spouse's net income as indicated on line 236 of his or her federal tax return and, if he or she resides in Quebec, the amount displayed on line 275 of the Quebec return. Moreover, if your spouse has received the universal child care benefit, this income must also be reported.


4- If you wish to claim certain federal and provincial credits as per your spouse's Schedule 2, you should answer "Yes" to the last question and click on "Next" at the bottom of the page.


5- Return to the "QuikClik Navigator" and select the new item "Spouse - Schedule 2 transfers".


6- On this new page, enter the information that is required by the program to calculate these transfers. The amounts entered must be the same as those displayed on the spouse's return. Once this information is entered, click on "Next" at the bottom of the page.


Please note that entering these income amounts is mandatory.


These Schedule 2 transfers apply only to your federal return. They do not apply to your Quebec tax return.
