Component to QST for Solidarity Tax Part

Recommended Posts

My son who is over 18 and lives at home with us has been able to claim the component related to QST depending of his income.


I see that this option is no longer available on UFile online.


Can someone please confirm if this has been eliminated or is it a UFile error?


Thank you.

I think I figured it out.


The questions are there but the sections are not labeled like it was last year "QST component" and "Dwelling component".


Is this a UFile Online interface change or just me?

You are right, it is a UFile interface change (both Windows and OnLine).

The data entry page is attempting to mirror the layout of the actual Schedule D,

 - Information about you

 - Information about your spouse

As a result, a heading QST component is no longer feasible as the QST credit involves the individual and an eventual spouse.

Data entry for your son living at your home should be,

 - did you live in a dwelling, either alone or ...? - No

 - were you tenant or owner? - Neither tenant nor owner

 - address and northern village as appropriate

Verify the resulting estimate in your son's Solidarity credit calculation
