Alimony payments - spousal payments

Recommended Posts

The spouse or common-law partner amount is automatically calculated using the data entered in the spouse's file. If you have indicated your marital status as married or as a common-law spouse, the program will determine the amount that you are entitled to claim.


The program will calculate the amount and enter it on line 303 of Schedule 1, and line 5812 of your provincial forms (except Quebec)

If you did not input any amounts in your spouse's file, the program will assume that you are entitled to the full spousal amount. Make sure to enter the information regarding your spouse's income in his or her file, so that the spousal amount is calculated correctly.

In the case where there is a separation in the year, the spousal amount can still be claimed based on the net income of your ex-spouse at the time of breakdown of the relationship. In order to claim the spousal amount in the year of separation in the program, please follow these steps:


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

2- Then, on the page to the right, at the question "Did your marital status change in 2012?", choose "Yes".

3- Back in the "QuikClik Navigator", click on "Ex-Spouse".

4- Complete the next page accordingly.
