It was not my intention for my wife to receive credit for taxes withheld from me on my RRIF withdrawal. How do I over-ride the tax withheld side of the pension transfer.
Unfortunately, you can't. There is no way to split your pension income without splitting the taxes withheld as well.
CRA rules are: The income tax that is withheld at source from the eligible pension income will have to be allocated from the transferring spouse or common-law partner to the receiving spouse or common-law partner in the same proportion as the pension income is allocated.
