How can I file return for dependants?

Hi guys, I am file my return for my wife and 3 dependent children over 18. I am looking for advice on how to transfer tuition amounts from them to me.  1) Do I need to first file their returns separately before I can include these tuition amounts?

How can I file return for dependants?

Yes. The returns for the dependants must be prepared first as certain line entries from their returns are necessary to complete the tuition transfer.

After recording each student as a dependant on your return, there are two sections in the Deductions portion of your return which must be completed to enable the tuition transfer - A) Additional Dependant Information and B) Tuition Amount Transfer (under the Claims for Dependants heading).
