3- On the page that appears, on the line "Are you eligible to claim the home buyers' amount and/or the Quebec first-time home buyer's tax credit? ".(If in Quebec)

4- If you answer "Yes", you must choose whether you share your amount according to the four choices.

5- If you choose "Claim specified amount", you must enter the amount claimed by your spouse and your amount. If the co-owner is not your spouse, leave the field blank.

This credit can be claimed in whole or in part by you or your spouse.

Please note that if the new home is co-owned by someone other than your spouse, you must also enter the information in the other person's file.
