How can I get my split pension income into deceased spouse's unlinked T1 General?

Spouse died August 2014 so forms can’t be linked.  I'm trying to split my work pension income.  Always worked in the past when I could link them.  Completed T1032 for me ok (pro-rated amount) and entered amount to split.  How do I enter that amount into unlinked spouse’s form on line 116 of his T1General.  Would have to override line 116 of his form and I can’t figure out how to override it or what else to do.

Answer

First make you you elected to split pension and select who's pension you are splitting on the pension splitting form. Then enter the amount on Line G. At this point you may not see an amount on Line 116 yet.

Change the form to the Pension worksheet and ensure that line 16 and line 17 are filled out. This tells the T1032 how much pension and taxes your spouse has. Line 116 should now be populated.

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.
