Why child's past year tuition leftover is not transferred to me or my wife this year?


Recommended Posts

My child (my dependent) had some tuition paid in 2015. In 2016 Ufile correctly transferred $5,000 to one parent (lower taxable income?) and there was some leftovers (less than $5,000). This year (2017) I can see the correct leftover tuition amount under my child's data, I picked "let Maxback decide" as last year, but I do not see the leftover tuition amount being used under me or my wife. The leftover amount is less than $5,000 so this year Ufile should claim it all. Can anyone help? Thanks a lot.

Hello dingfend88888,

Re: unused tuition fees from 2016

According to CRA rules, a dependant can only transfer the unused tuition fees for current year to his/her parent.

But, the taxpayer (student) can use the 2016 unused amount in 2017 to reduce his/her payable taxes down to zero if needed or can keep them for next year.
