Inputting dependent birthdate

I had children born in 2021. Do I enter those as a dependent for 2020? The form says it is an invalid birthdate.

Inputting dependent birthdate

Hi, thank you for using Intuit TurboTax Community

Children born in 2021 do not need to be entered on the 2020 tax return. Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) will consider these dependants for benefits such as the Canada Child benefit even though they do not appear on the 2020 tax return if an application, such as the RC66 has been previously submitted. Dependant information is only required on the 2020T1 if they were dependant in the tax year, 2020.

Hope this helps
