Can I force TurboTax to also file a BC Schedule 11, if I'm temporarily living in Ontario and don't want to lose my BC provincial carry forward unused tuition amount?

Is there a way to force a form to be filed?

 

I was reading this discussion "As a new Ontario resident, do I lose all of the provincial carryover tuition, education, and textboo..."  and there seems to be some uncertainty about returning to the previous province of residence... wondering if filing a second S11 might ensure that there's the carry-over amount? or what do you think of this?

Update: surprisingly got through to the CRA... lots of "maybe" answers and "not sure," but they outlined some "options" #facepalm

 

- definitely no to filing a second provincial S11

- me + spouse can file in BC still

- I can file on ON, she can file in BC

- can try claiming provincial amount from previous year's return on next tax return in BC (i.e., leave it blank on ON S11 form this year, then next year's S11 BC transpose the provincial number from last year's notice of assessment)

 

Really seems uncertain if BC will honour the credits from before if moving away and back, and no clear way to log them. Seems like an audit-trap.
