Non-Resident- NR4 and NR4-OAS

Recommended Posts

You receive old age security pension income from the Canadian government. However, you are a non-resident of Canada.

You have received a T4A (OAS) slip indicating the income received from Canada.

To declare this income in Canada, follow the procedure below:

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

2- In the "Income" section, check the box for "Pension income, T4A, split pension income".

3- Under "Other personal situations", check the box for "Immigrant, emigrant, non-resident taxpayer, you are..." and click "Next" at the bottom of the page.

4- Return to the "QuikClik Navigator" and choose the item "Immigrant, emigrant, non-resident".

5- On the screen to your right, choose the line "You were a non-resident of Canada for all of 2013 and you are making an election under s. 217 of the Income Tax Act".

6- On the page that appears, enter the details of your situation.

7- Return to the "QuikClik Navigator" and select "Pension income, T4A, split pension".

8- On the screen to your right, choose "T4A(OAS) - Old age security pension income" and enter the amounts in the corresponding fields.

The program will generate Schedule C, "Electing under Section 217 of the Income Tax Act", and Form T1136.

Thanks Gabriel.


But for some reason the box numbers don't line up in the last step? For example ufile T4-OAS says box 18 is Taxable pension paid. But Box 18 on the NR4 is the exemption code?


Why doesn't it line up?
