Why is our return so low? RRSP Contributions

Recommended Posts

Hi all - been a long time UFile user (10 years). I have run into an issue this year and I'm not sure why. 

 

So, got hitched in 2016. My spouse contributed $10,500 to RRSP and we have a combined income of $125,000. Why are they only getting $1,500 back??? I don't understand. It should be in the magnitude of $3,500!!

 

Please help - it's virtually impossible for us to see why with this software.

It does not matter what your combined income is. Taxes are calculated individually, It is only her income that matters when it comes to getting a tax credit against her taxable income. If she is in a low tax bracket, e.g. 15%, then the tax deduction will also be small (15%)
