Tuition Credit Not Being Transferred to my wife


Recommended Posts

Dear All;

I am a full time graduate student at the University of Calgary. I am trying to transfer my tuition tax credit to my wife for 2021; however, the credit is not kicking in. I am not using any amount of the credit myself. My wife had more income than me. Could you please guide me on what I can do?

You have to first claim your current year’s federal tuition fees and any unused tuition, education, and textbook amounts carried forward from previous years on your Income Tax and Benefit Return, even if someone else paid your fees. The amount you must use on your own tax return is equal to the amount of credit required to reduce the taxes you owe.
