In May 2014 I moved back to Alberta, while my husband stayed in BC. He still supported us. How does this effect our return?

 We didn't separate or divorce I just moved back to have our baby

If you have different provinces of residence, TurboTax will require you to prepare your returns separately.

If you prepared your return with TurboTax last year, when you carry forward your data, you will be asked if you live in different provinces last year. Click yes, and on the next page it will ask you which of the returns you want to carry forward. You can then pick yours or your husbands and then come back through the same process in a new return to carry forward the other person's data.

To create multiple returns under the same account click Tools > Return Manager and choose Create a New Return. You can come back to the return manager at any point and switch between the two returns as necessary to complete both of your returns.

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.
