I am a dual citizen (US and Canada) residing in Canada. My only income last year was a distribution from my IRA ( I am over 59 1/2). Income tax was withheld in the US on this distribution. I am trying to file my Canadian tax using your software. I can't figure how where to enter the information about the withholding.
Hi, thank you for using Intuit Turbo Tax Live Community
Usually IRA income is reported on line 115 and the final US tax paid is claimed as a foreign tax credit. The Canada Revenue Agency(CRA) has information on reporting IRA income:
Note: To support the claim for income tax required , CRA may ask for a US tax return to support the claim for the final tax paid.
In general if tax is paid to a foreign jurisdiction and not to Canada the claim on the tax return is for a foreign tax credit on the Canadian tax return
Like the link says you should likely contact CRA to get more information
Hope this helps
