Box 16 - foreign income tax paid on dividends income doesn't affect the total refund


Recommended Posts


Not sure if it's a bug or just some tax related rule...

I am filling in a T5 for my spouse foreign income with rough number like (USD)

Box 15: 300$

Box 16: 50$

I noticed that the amount of Box 16 (foreign income tax paid on dividends income) doesn't affect the total refund 

Shouldn't the amount of tax paid affect the bottom line, or it doesn't matter if the foreign tax was paid or not?
