Claim for an Amount for an Eligible Dependant

Situation: a single tax payer supports both senior parents who are married, have no income at all and live with the taxpayer. The tax payer has no kids under 18 years old either. The taxpayer claimed an amount for an eligible dependant ( one of the parents). Actually, Profile suggested such a treatment. I made no overrides on the tax return.

CRA conducted a review and declined the claim based on " that another supporting person has met the requirments to claim the dependant for thsi claim". Basically, CRA saying husband supports wife or vice versa, even though both of them have no income at all.

Did anybody have similar case at all, and if yes did CRA chalenge the case?



Please email the following information to to the attention of Hardev for review and investigation:

1.  A copy of the coupled return (.11T file extension).
2.  A scanned copy of the Notice of Assessment (NOA) received from CRA.

We will get back to you with the findings upon completion of our investigation.

Thank you.

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.
