Hello fabienp,

When a person emigrates from Canada, December 31 is considered the day that he or she left the province or territory where he /she resided.

To enter these changes, please follow the steps below.

1 - On the left-side menu of the "Interview tab", select "Identification" (the first item).

2 - On this page, go to the line "Province of residence on December 31st 2023" Choose from the drop-down menu  the province that you lived in when you left Canada.

3 - Then, return to the left side menu and select "Interview setup".

4 - In the page that appears to the right, check the box for "Immigrant, emigrant, non-resident taxpayer, you are a Canadian resident and your spouse immigrated to Canada in the year" and click "Next" at the bottom of the page.

5 - Return to the left side menu and select "Interview tab" and select the "Immigrant, emigrant, non-resident" and in the right-side screen, and click on the plus "+" icon to the right of the line "You emigrated from Canada in 2023".

6 - On the page that appears, enter the information relevant to your situation.

7 - Subsequently, enter all the information to complete your tax return.

You must mail your returns because they are not eligible for electronic transmission.
