How can I show on the form that I was out of Canada for 200+ days in 2020?

We appreciate you choosing TurboTax,

 

You were out of Canada for 200 days means your residency status has changed.

 

When your residency status changes, it also changes the way your taxes are calculated. TurboTax gives you an opportunity to indicate when your status changed soon after you start your tax return.

Follow the applicable steps to enter your information into TurboTax:
