How do I fill out a TD1 form for a 2nd part-time job?

For my first job, I already have the TD1 and TD1ON done. But for my second part-time job I just got, how do I fill out the TD1 and TD1ON forms? For the first page, should I put a 0 on the bottom line because I would've claimed the basic personal amount on the TD1/TD1ON with my first job? For the 2nd page, I don't know how to fill it out, particularly the two boxes "More than one employer or payer at the same time" and "Total income less than total claim amount". I already have the TD1 for my first job done (I didn't claim anything on it except the basic personal amount) and between both jobs, I will make about $9000, less than the basic personal amount. 

I was thinking, should the bottom line on the first page be 0 and check box the "more than one employer...." and leave the "total income less..." box blank because I already have the TD1/ON filled with my first job?


It's great that you're planning ahead! However, in your case, there's no reason to worry about the second job tax-wise. You are correct on how you've completed the second TD1 - the first page should be a zero, and the box for "more than one employer" should be checked.

In most cases, taxpayers who have a second job end up with a balance owing as both jobs factor the basic amount into the tax calculation. Since the combined total of both jobs won't be over the basic credit amount, that won't be an issue for you this year.

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.
