Molly,

You need to manually split the foreign tax paid when splitting foreign pension.  To do this you go the the "Foreign Tax Credits for Finland" (FTC) worksheet; in the "Foreign Income" section on this worksheet there is a row tiltled "Split foreign pension", in this row there is a cell under the column heading "Other" where you will see this audit message:

"Foreign tax withheld on eligible foreign pension income may be split on the same basis as the elected split-pension amount on Form T1032. You may adjust foreign pension and foreign tax withheld on this worksheet."

AND this is the field where you enter the split foreign tax paid.

Hope the above 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.
