Income from foreign rental in Foreign Tax credits form

I followed the steps as mentioned here - https://turbotax.community.intuit.ca/community/investments-rentals/discussion/you-will-need-to-re[pr...

 

When I look up Foreign Tax Credit form it prompts me to enter country name, however there is no text box/list to enter/select country name and if I hit continue then wizard takes me to the benefits section. Since income from foreign rent is shown in T776 it doesn't show up in calculation of foreign tax credits form. I am using TT'19 and it is the latest version.

 

Could someone please help? @TurboTaxKim @TurboTaxSusan @TurboTaxLise

@TurboTaxLise thanks for your response. I had a really long online session with support team this morning and they that said would get back to me by tomorrow.

 

Problem is simple - there is no way to include foreign rental income (non-USA) in Foreign Tax Credits form. FTC gets its data from foreign slips and foreign rental is not put on foreign slip because it is put in T776. Due to this foreign tax credits calculation is not being done properly. It ends up using foreign income/tax that was put in foreign slip only.

did someone figure this out. I am having the same problem. My US rental income is reported on the T776 schedules but I have US taxes that I would like to claim. The FTC form links to t-slips

I got a call from TT last week and I was told that the only way to get tax credits is to show rental income in "Other foreign non-business Income" in foreign slip. I don't agree with doing this simply because I cannot capture enough details about rental property in foreign slip. TT said they will not change this, which in my opinion is a shortcoming in TT.

 

I don't know how and why some admins in TT have suggested editing foreign rental income in FTC directly - https://turbotax.community.intuit.ca/community/investments-rentals/discussion/you-will-need-to-re[pr...

This is simply not possible.

Thank you. 

I agree with you! I need to track UCC etc. Filling it in on the other income line would be misrepresenting the amount to CRA

Hi,

 

May I know if you've solved your problem or not?  I also have the same problem: foreign rental income with foreign tax paid.  Thanks!

Yes I did.  The online version allows you to report your income correctly in the 776 and then report the income on the FTC form and claim the taxes paid. Adding the income on the FTC form does  not double it up. 

In the downloaded version the cells you need are grayed out.

The online version also provides more lines on the 1135 if you need them. You also have the option of net filing your return and 1135 separately if you still cannot get enough lines.

 

When I complained to the support person that I had already paid for the downloaded version and I did not want to pay again to use the online version, they gave me a promo code to file with the online version for free. The only problem then was that I could not upload the draft return I had already started and I had to redo the returns from scratch.

I hope this helps!

Hi there ... one year later and I see this is still an issue (at least in the downloaded version). What was the outcome of escalating this last year?

Thanks
