When you split your pension with your spouse, the full amount of the pension being split shows as two separate entries on the tax return.
- The full amount of the pension being split is reported in the Total Income section of the tax return (Line 115 - Pension Income).
- Then the amount you are splitting with your spouse is deducted from your return in the next section to arrive at Net Income (Line 210 - Deduction for Split Pension Amount).
Your spouse will have one entry on Line 115 as shown in the screenshot.
