How can I split pension income with a spouse who died this year? The living spouse is no problem, but the dead spouse shows $0 available to split and blocks the split.

How can I split pension income with a spouse who died this year? The living spouse is no problem, but the dead spouse shows $0 available to split and blocks the split.

If the spouse was alive between 01/01/2018 and 31/12/2018, then while preparing your return for tax year 2018, don't indicate that your spouse was deceased. This will allow the full split to happen.
