Wife came to Canada in Sept, 2018 from UK. earned 45K before coming. Is husband allowed to claim full spousal amount?
I entered 45000 in box 5293 and her credits are properly prorated to $3009 but on husband's return still claims the full spousal amount of $11809. Does not sound logical. Her income from August to Dec is zero after coming to Canada. Do I need to overwrite the spousal amount to zero? It also expects to say yes to "is taxpayer's income zero".
