I do not see T626, and can not fill oversea tax credit? Can you tell me how to get that form show up in online return?

Click 'Help' in TurboTax Online and enter T626 to pull up the following:

Report all income in the Income section of the Interview. Be sure to enter the amounts from box 72 (Section 122.3 income) and box 73 (Days outside Canada) of your T4 slip.

Claim the overseas employment tax credit in the Deductions section of the interview.

To enter this information, you must first answer some questions in the Personal Tax Profile at the beginning of the interview.

  1. On the first Personal Tax Profile screen, answer Yes to the question "did you work in 2014?"
  2. Select I was employed.
  3. Select T4.
  4. Select I worked overseas for six consecutive months or more of the year.

    You'll enter your T-slip information in the Income section of the interview.

  5. Proceed through the interview and complete the Working Overseas screens in the Deductions section.

Your employer is required to complete Part A of Form T626, Overseas Employment Tax Credit.

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.
