Just Married - Treatment of Non-Resident Spouse's Income

Recommended Posts



I'd like to confirm if I've done this right. I got married in Dec 2012 and my spouse is a non-resident. I have informed the CRA of the marital status changed and have also reflected this in my UFile return. As for my spouse, I have selected the option of showing only her "Net Income" since she does not have a SIN and her PR application is still in progress. I would like to confirm that I have to enter her "world income" (converted to C$) in the line that says "Net Federal Income of your spouse (line 236 of his or her return)".


I would also like to know if this affects my return (Note: I'm not claiming the spousal amount or GST credits) or if it is purely for CRA's information.


Thanks so much!
