Child Tax Benefit is with my form but I want it to my spouse

In past years child tax credit has been paid to my spouse and I want that to be done this year too

The amount shown by TurboTax for the Canada Child Tax Benefit (CCTB) is merely an estimate of the amounts you are entitled to (or would be if you were the parent receiving the CCTB), based on the information you have provided. Any change to that is not part of your income tax return, and has to be requested directly from the CCTB.

If your spouse has been receiving the CCTB, and has not requested any change, he or she will continue to receive it, and should get a notice with the exact amounts some time in June or July. (Note that your spouse does have to file an income tax return to receive the CCTB.)

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.
