When I split my husbands income it adds the amount to my income but does not take it out of his income. What should I do?

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.
