Where do I find form 6118? I paid property taxes for 7 months and rent for 5 months. I am using turbotax

I paid property taxes for 7 months and rent for 5 months.Where can I put these in? I am using turbotax and I do not see form 6118.

Answer

This information applies to Ontario only.

There is no form 6118. This number refers to line 6118 on form ON-BEN for Ontario. This is the Application for the Ontario energy and property tax, (also rent) credit, (OEPTC). Select yes. The next section is for the Northern Ontario energy credit, line 6119; followed by the Choice for delayed single OTB payment, line 6109. Read this last section very carefully BEFORE you select yes.

line 6113 is for the Ontario senior homeowners' property tax grant, (OSHPTG) - for seniors only. If you are eligible, even for part of the year, tick yes.

Page 2, Part A- Amount paid for a principal residence for 2014 - line 6110 = rent paid for the year or part of the year. Line 6112 = property tax paid for the year or part of the year.

Part B - Declaration: type in the first address, postal code, (no spaces), number of months you lived there, the property tax or rent paid & the municipality or landlord. Next line, second address, postal code etc, (same info). When you are finished, make sure that the property tax paid in Part B matches the amount you entered on line 6112 above; same for rent paid of course, on line 6110. You're done!

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
