How do I allocate the business auto expense (I filled out the business auto form) as a company expense, not a personal expense?

I filled out a T2125 form for a partnership between me and my wife.  I filled out the business auto template and chose to allocate the expense to the T2125 form from the drop down menu available.  However, the expense is being allocated under automobile expenses in the "other amounts deductible from your share of partnership income".  I want it to appear under part 5 of the T2125 (line 9281 I think) so the expense is shared between both of us, according to our percentage of the partnership.

At the top of the linked Auto Details form there is a place to indicate ownership by the business and 100% of the auto attributed to a particular business. If there was more than one business listed you would see a place to attribute a portion to each. If you say "yes" then the Auto will fall under a company expense, rather than a partner expense.

The overridden field will show in Red. Check your T2125 to ensure it is a business auto expense as desired, and the T2125 of the spouse.

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.
