However, if you have unused federal education and textbook amounts from prior years, you can still carry them forward to your 2017 and future returns. Some provinces have maintained the credits, while others have eliminated them (See Can I claim both federal and provincial tuition and education amounts?). For tax year 2016 and earlier The education and textbook credit is based on the number of full-time months and part-time months you were in school, as shown on your T2202, T2202A, TL11, or tuition receipt (rather than the actual amount you spent on textbooks). Each month you were a student is counted only once, even if you were enrolled in two programs that month.

However, if you had unused federal tuition, education and textbook amounts from prior years, you can still carry them forward to your 2017 return. The education amount was a tax credit based on the number of months you spent studying full-time or part-time in a qualifying educational program during the tax year. The education amount was $400 per month for every full-time month you were enrolled and $120 per month for every part-time month. The number of months you were a student was shown on the T2202 certificate, T2202A certificate or TL11 slip issued to you by your educational institution. Each month you were a student could only be counted once, even if you were enrolled in two programs that month. If you were eligible for the education amount, you were also eligible for the textbook credit. This credit is $65 for each full-time month and $20 for each part-time month you were enrolled.

The CRA requires that the student claim the tuition fees on their own return first, regardless of who paid them. Once the student’s tax owing is reduced to zero, they can transfer leftover amounts to their spouse/partner, parent or grandparent, or to their spouse’s parent or grandparent. Does the student have to transfer their unused amounts? No, the student can choose to carry forward the unused amounts and claim them in a future year, or transfer some of the unused amounts and carry forward the rest. What are the benefits of transferring the unused amounts versus carrying them forward? Transferring unused amounts to someone in your family helps that person lower their balance owing. On the other hand, any amounts the student doesn’t transfer can be carried forward to reduce the student’s balance owing in the future. Can the student split the amount they transfer between parents? No, only one person can receive the transfer. If the student is transferring their provincial amount as well as their federal amount, the same person must receive both transfers. Students don’t have to transfer to the same person every year. Should the student transfer to the parent with the higher or lower income? The credit isn’t affected by income, so ...

However, the spouse with the higher net income can claim the expenses if the spouse with the lower net income met one or more of the CRA’s exceptions during the tax year. Unless you indicate that the lower income spouse met one or more of the CRA’s exceptions, TurboTax automatically claims childcare expenses on the return of the spouse with the lower net income. If you haven’t entered your spouse’s income yet, TurboTax assumes your spouse’s income is zero and transfers childcare expenses to them. Some other reasons that your childcare expenses might not be calculating are: Your balance owing is zero. Since childcare expenses are non-refundable, if your balance owing is zero, the expenses will not result in a refund. Your income is zero. The amount you can claim for childcare expenses is capped at two thirds of your earned income or the income cap for the child’s age/situation. When you enter your dependant information, make sure you correctly enter: your child’s date of birth according to the format shown on your screen; and your child’s relation to you (indicate son/daughter, not father/mother).

Depending on the province or territory’s tuition, education and textbook credits, students may also transfer the province’s maximum amount minus the amount they need to reduce their provincial tax owing to zero. For example: Blake has $6,000 in tuition credits this year and only needs $2,000 to reduce tax owing to zero. Blake wants to transfer a portion of the leftover tuition credits to a parent. The maximum amount eligible for transfer is $5,000 minus the amount Blake needs to reduce tax owing to zero ($2,000). So Blake has $3,000 available to transfer to a parent. Students must claim their tuition amounts and reduce their own tax payable to zero before they may transfer any leftover credits to an eligible recipient. Once they have claimed their tuition fees, TurboTax will let them know how much of their leftover current-year credits can be transferred to someone else. Who can the leftover credits be transferred to? If you are the student’s spouse or partner, or the student or spouse/partner’s parent or grandparent, you may be eligible to use their leftover credits to help reduce how much tax you owe.

<description>
Yes, scholarships and other academic awards are considered income and must be reported on your return. However, you can reduce the taxable amount of this income if you meet eligibility requirements for the scholarship exemption. TurboTax automatically calculates your exemption (the amount you won't be taxed on), from the information you enter in box 105. The remaining (taxable), amount is then included in the Other Income&nbsp; section on your tax return. How to add your scholarship amounts in TurboTax In the top-right of your screen, select Find* and type "t-slips" into the search field. Select T-Slips from the options that appear, and then select Go. TurboTax displays a list of slips. Select T4A – Pension, Retirement, Annuity, and Other Income (including scholarships and bursaries) from the list, and then select Continue. On the T4A – Pension, Retirement, Annuity, and Other Income step, at Box 105: Scholarships etc., TurboTax provides 5 options to enter your box 105 amount. Enter your amount in the space that best describes your situation. If the school you attended is considered a designated educational institution, enter your amount in the space that best describes your situation.

<description>
There are some important differences regarding how, and from whom, you can claim transferred tuition. The process of claiming these amounts (and the amounts themselves), can vary depending on these differences. Let’s first look at how you may claim tuition amounts when transferred from a spouse/partner. Before you begin, you will need to find out the federal and/or provincial amount(s) your spouse or partner is transferring to you. Then, enter income and RRSP information for both yourself and your spouse/partner into TurboTax. &nbsp; *Note for coupled returns: You will need to enter income, tuition and education information for both you and your spouse/partner. TurboTax will automatically claim the unused amounts on the spouse’s return with the higher income. (If you’re not preparing a coupled return, you’ll manually enter the amounts your spouse/partner is transferring to you.) How to enter tuition amounts from your spouse or partner Instructions valid for both online and CD/Download versions of TurboTax Select the icon of the magnifying glass (or Find) on TurboTax, and type Federal Spouse.

<description>
Yes, you are able to claim tuition paid to schools outside Canada, provided they meet the following criteria: Universities outside Canada where a Canadian student is enrolled in a course that lasts at least 3 consecutive weeks and leads to a degree. Universities, colleges, or other educational institutions in the United States that give courses at the post-secondary school level if the student is living in Canada (near the border) throughout the year and commutes to that institution. In order to claim these fees, your institution must complete and give you either a Form TL11A - Tuition, Education, and Textbook Amounts Certificate - University Outside Canada, or Form TL11C - Tuition, Education, and Textbook Amounts Certificate - Commuter to the United States, whichever applies. If your tuition is reported in foreign currency You must convert it to Canadian currency before entering your amounts, using the exchange rate from the time when the tuition was paid. To do this: If you paid by credit card, check your credit card statement for that month. The Canadian dollar amount will be shown on the statement, as well as the exchange rate at which it was calculated. If you paid by another method,&nbsp;visit the Bank of Canada's Web site to get the exchange rate. Once you've determined the ...

The federal education and textbook amounts have been eliminated for taxation years beyond 2016. However, if you have unused federal education and textbook amounts from prior years, you can still carry them forward to your 2017 and future returns. Some provinces have maintained the credits, while others have eliminated them (See Can I claim both federal and provincial tuition and education amounts?). For tax year 2016 and earlier The education and textbook credit is based on the number of full-time months and part-time months you were in school, as shown on your T2202, T2202A, TL11, or tuition receipt (rather than the actual amount you spent on textbooks). Each month you were a student is counted only once, even if you were enrolled in two programs that month. If you were enrolled full-time, the education amount was $400/month and the textbook amount was $65/month. If you were enrolled part-time, the education amount was $120/month and the textbook amount was $20/month. TurboTax automatically claims the textbook credit for you when you enter your T2202, T2202A, TL11, or tuition receipt information. Enter this information in the DEDUCTIONS Students step of TurboTax (See&nbsp;How do I claim my tuition fees?). Related information: How do I claim my tuition fees? Can I claim both federa...

Note: For 2017 and later tax years, the federal education and textbook amounts have been eliminated. However, if you had unused federal tuition, education and textbook amounts from prior years, you can still carry them forward to your 2017 return. The education amount was a tax credit based on the number of months you spent studying full-time or part-time in a qualifying educational program during the tax year.&nbsp;The education amount was $400 per month for every full-time month you were enrolled and $120 per month for every part-time month. The number of months you were a student was shown on the T2202 certificate, T2202A certificate or TL11 slip issued to you by your educational institution. Each month you were a student could only be counted once, even if you were enrolled in two programs that month. If you were eligible for the education amount, you were also eligible for the textbook credit. This credit is $65 for each full-time month and $20 for each part-time month you were enrolled. TurboTax claimed the education and textbook amount automatically when you enter the number of months you were in school.

Frequently asked questions about transferring and carrying forward tuition and education amounts

</link>
<description>
Can the person who paid the tuition claim it? The CRA requires that the student claim the tuition fees on their own return first, regardless of who paid them. Once the student’s tax owing is reduced to zero, they can transfer leftover amounts to their spouse/partner, parent or grandparent, or to their spouse’s parent or grandparent. Does the student have to transfer their unused amounts? No, the student can choose to carry forward the unused amounts and claim them in a future year, or transfer some of the unused amounts and carry forward the rest. What are the benefits of transferring the unused amounts versus carrying them forward? Transferring unused amounts to someone in your family helps that person lower their balance owing. On the other hand, any amounts the student doesn’t transfer can be carried forward to reduce the student’s balance owing in the future. Can the student split the amount they transfer between parents? No, only one person can receive the transfer. If the student is transferring their provincial amount as well as their federal amount, the same person must receive both transfers. Students don’t have to transfer to the same person every year. Should the student transfer to the parent with the higher or lower income? The credit isn’t affected by income, so ...

Why aren’t my childcare expenses being calculated on my return?

https://turbotax.community.intuit.ca/community/family-education/help/why-aren-t-my-childcare-expenses-being-calculated-on-my-return/01/873607#M12
</link>
<description>
The CRA normally requires childcare expenses to be claimed by the spouse with the lower net income. However, the spouse with the higher net income can claim the expenses if the spouse with the lower net income met one or more of the CRA’s exceptions during the tax year. Unless you indicate that the lower income spouse met one or more of the CRA’s exceptions, TurboTax automatically claims childcare expenses on the return of the spouse with the lower net income. If you haven’t entered your spouse’s income yet, TurboTax assumes your spouse’s income is zero and transfers childcare expenses to them. Some other reasons that your childcare expenses might not be calculating are: Your balance owing is zero. Since childcare expenses are non-refundable, if your balance owing is zero, the expenses will not result in a refund. Your income is zero. The amount you can claim for childcare expenses is capped at two thirds of your earned income or the income cap for the child’s age/situation. When you enter your dependant information, make sure you correctly enter: your child’s date of birth according to the format shown on your screen; and your child’s relation to you (indicate son/daughter, not father/mother).

<description>
Student loans and student lines of credit are not considered income. Do not claim either of these on your tax return as income. However, you can claim the interest paid on a student loan as a deduction to help lower your tax balance owing. Once your tax owing is reduced to zero, any leftover interest you paid can be carried forward to future years (up to five years). Note that only&nbsp;you can claim&nbsp;the interest paid on your student loans, even if someone else paid the fees. The&nbsp;amount of interest you paid on student loans appears on the last bank statement of the tax year for the bank through which you got your student loan. You cannot claim interest paid on a student line of credit. To claim interest paid on a student loan: Select&nbsp;Find&nbsp;in the upper-right hand corner. In the Find window, type Students Select Students from the list and then select Go. On the Student Profile step, check Student loan interest and select Continue. On the Student loan interest step, select Yes, I have eligible student loan interest, and then select&nbsp;Continue. On the Student Loan Interest step, enter your interest amounts.

Adoption expenses are a dependant credit. You claim them by adding your adopted child as a dependant on your tax return and then entering the adoption expenses in the&nbsp;Deductions section. Before you begin: Ensure you are able to&nbsp;claim eligible adoption expenses this year. Add the adopted child to your tax return as a dependant. To enter your adoption expenses: In the upper-right corner of your screen, select Find*. In the Find window, type Claims for Dependants and select Go. Answer Yes to the question 'Would you like to review or claim any of these credits?' and select Continue. Choose the child for whom you have adoption expenses from the list and select Enter Credit Info. Check Adoption expenses and select Continue. If you don't see the Find button, you may not have completed the Setting Up section on your return. Continue through the Setting Up section until the Find button appears.

Students may transfer a maximum of $5,000 of the current year’s federal tuition amount minus how much they need to reduce their federal tax owing to zero. Depending on the province or territory’s tuition, education and textbook credits, students may also transfer the province’s maximum amount minus the amount they need to reduce their provincial tax owing to zero. For example: Blake has $6,000 in tuition credits this year and only needs $2,000 to reduce tax owing to zero. Blake wants to transfer a portion of the leftover tuition credits to a parent. The maximum amount eligible for transfer is $5,000 minus the amount Blake needs to reduce tax owing to zero ($2,000). So Blake has $3,000 available to transfer to a parent. Students must claim their tuition amounts and reduce their own tax payable to zero before they may transfer any leftover credits to an eligible recipient. Once they have claimed their tuition fees, TurboTax will let them know how much of their leftover current-year credits can be transferred to someone else. Who can the leftover credits be transferred to? If you are the student’s spouse or partner, or the student or spouse/partner’s parent or grandparent, you may be eligible to use their leftover credits to help reduce how much tax you owe. Your child or spouse ...
