If my wife does not have a SIN number, what do I enter for it?

My wife had been in Canada for over 183 days in 2020, however she is not a Canadian citizen and does not have a SIN number. What do I enter for her SIN number?

We appreciate you choosing TurboTax,

 

Enter 000-000-000 if the spouse does not have a SIN. Residents of Canada may file their federal tax returns electronically via NetFile. As a Québec resident, you'll need to print and mail the provincial tax return since the spouse does not have a SIN.

 

(It is recommended that you report yourself as married, with a non-resident spouse and with no income. The spousal credit should not be claimed.)

 

Please contact our phone support team or contact us directly on Facebook or Twitter if you require further assistance.
