Do you enter foreign income into line 10400 or under reporting statement of world income *Schedule A" line 6.
If i report foreign income in line 10400 there will be a refund. If i report in world income (schedule A) there is tax owning. I am Canadian filing as non resident earning 11,000 from Jan -Jun in Canada and 5000 in Australia Jun -Dec 2019.
If this Foreign income was during the non-resident period, then you report it under the Statement of World Income, not on Line10400. and do not deduct the tax.
If the income was during the resident period then you will include it on Line 10400 and will deduct the taxes associated with it based on the tax treaty with the country.
If I understand your situation correctly, the foreign income you earned was after you left Canada, so you do not include it in your income.
I hope this was helpful
Thanks for replying, The foreign income is reported for when i am non-resident. If i report this on world income and not foreign income i have a tax owing of over $1000. This i do not understand as my pay is low 11K in Canada and 5K in Australia. I have no other investments or RRSP or tax owning form previous years.
Also the Turbo tax standard says in Statement of world income section that you only complete this section if you were non resident for all of 2019.Thanks
Following up on this i find the refundable tax credits almost doubles when entering my net world income and the refund now goes to tax owing . My income is very low and still it tells me i owe $1000 .Not understanding this at all. Tax was paid at source in both countries.
