Claim for Spousal amount.....A bit of a complicated situation
Wife is a Canadian Resident married a US citizen. Her total income 40K of which US 23K from self employment in US and 15K in canada mixed self employment+T4. Husband's income last year is zero. She travels back and forth so does the Husaband. She is going to immigration to sponsor him. Can she claim her husband as dependent/spousal amount? My reluctance is that she may have claimed him dependent in US and he is travelling back and forth with her and living with her in Canada while she is here, does that have an effect?
Also they were married in 2012 but she has always filed single in Canada because the husband had high income in US for previous years and because he was not a Canadian immigrant. Does that effect on her GST/Trillium for her rent paid in Canada because if the high family income as opposed to her single income in Canada.
Can someone help.
