How can I force Ufile to use my spouse (high income one) to claim medical expense?


Recommended Posts

I have calculated the difference and my spouse marginal tax rate is 48% and we have over 20K medical expense. using $2479 is actually beneficial in our case.

Is there anyone know how to force to use higher income family member for medical expense? 

Thanks in advance!

You can choose under the medical expenses dialogue in the Interview section. In my case, there was a 3$ dollar benefit if forced to the higher income earner. This is unusual and could be due to the optimizer working with pension fractionation, charitable donations and medical expenses simultaneously.

Thank you very much. I just tried it. you are right, the software did chose the best for our case. If I force to claim medical expense by spouse actually the refund is $100 less otherwise. So I kept the claim after all. But this is good to know.
