Does TurboTax automatically deduct Canadian tax off US income? I entered the amount in Foreign Slip. Thank you!

Answer

Enter amounts reported on a T-slip through the T-slip entry screen. Enter the source country in the field provided.

Enter amounts not reported on a T-slip directly on the Other Income and Deductions worksheet (OTHER).

If you are in the EasyStep Interview, click the Go To Forms button at the top right area of the interview screen.

  1. From the Forms menu, select Form Lookup....
    The Form Lookup window opens.
  2. In the Keyword to search for field, type OTHER.
  3. From the displayed list of forms, double-click OTH - Other Income, Deductions and Credits.
  4. Scroll down to the Additional Deductions - Line 256 section on page 2 of the form.
  5. In the Other income exempt under a tax treaty field, enter the appropriate foreign income amount.
    Note: Enter this amount in Canadian dollars.

Tax treaties are designed to avoid you paying tax in two countries on the same income. For the most current status of these tax treaties, visit the Finance Canada Web site at http://www.fin.gc.ca/treaties-conventions/in_force--eng.asp.

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.
