How do you claim Quebec Installments on an Ontario return

I have a client that lived in Quebec during 2011 and made Installment payments to Quebec.  He now lives in Ontario.  Can I claim the installments from the Ontario return or do they have to be done separately.



If you have self employment income from Quebec then you need to file TP1 return for Quebec and you can report the installents paid in the TP1 return.  Otherwise, you need to report the istallments paid while working in Quebec as Tax paid by installments - line 476 on the Federal return filed for the province of Ontario.  For additional clarification you can mail a covering letter to CRA explaining the situation.

Hope this helps.

People come to ProFile for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
