It does not matter as both of your incomes are considered in determining your eligibility for the Ontario Trillium Benefit.  Flip a coin.

Hi, thanks for the reply. If it doesn't matter who applies then why does TurboTax give me an option to decide who to select?

Exactly. I've wasted a bunch of time on this. The software should be smart enough to make it a drop down choice - either None, the Husband, or the Wife are applying. Not Yes/No for both spouses. If we choose yes for both, it shows up on both of our ON-BEN and then what, we probably get in trouble when the papers arrive at Ontario gov't.
