Client separated on December 29th, 2017. Can she claim the dependent amount on line 305. Does the fact that she was only separated for 3 days in 2017 matter?
I know in ALL CRA literature it says "AT any time during the year", but just three days at the end of the year would allow her to claim the entire amount?
She is still separated in 2018, so the 90 days rule is qualified.
Can someone please help. I don't want to claim the amount on line 305 and then later she has a problem with CRA.
THANK YOU IN ADVANCE
