How do I claim the BC Sales tax credit? It does not go onto the filing after I tick the box

Under the "Provincial" tab > "Provincial Tax Credit Profile" > place a check mark for the BC Sales Tax Credit. Add any additional qualifying BC credits and Continue through the provincial section providing requested information as applicable.

You're eligible to claim the sales tax credit for a tax year if you were a resident of B.C. on December 31 of the tax year and you:

  • were 19 years of age or older, or
  • had a spouse or common-law partner, or
  • were a parent.

For 2013 and later years, you can claim up to $75 for yourself and $75 for your cohabiting spouse or common-law partner.

If you're single, the credit is reduced by 2% of your net income over $15,000. If you have a cohabiting spouse or common-law partner, the credit is reduced by 2% of your family net income over $18,000.

You can't claim this credit if you were confined to a prison or similar institution as of December 31 and were there for more than six months of the tax year.

This doesn't explain the 0.00 entry that we cannot change though. How is this $75 claimed if it shows 0.00?
