I have unused federal tuition and education amounts of $227636 and ON amounts of $218322. I work in Vancouver (BC). What happen to ON credits when I file taxes in BC?
I was an international student at U of Toronto, studied many years (BASc and MASc), recently graduated. Currently choosing between job offers in Vancouver (BC) and Toronto (ON). Wondering how the location of my job would affect my provincial (ON) tuition credits if I carry forward to BC. 



Thank you for using the Intuit TurboTax AnswerXchange

Rules for claiming provincial carry forward of tuition credits for a different province can be complicated, so we recommend confirming with the Canada Revenue Agency. But, check the bottom of the Provincial Tuition and  Education Amounts form. The schedule BC(S11) , 2018, has this: note " (1) If you resided in another province or territory on December 31, 2017, enter on line 1 your unused federal tuition, education, and textbook amounts from your 2017 notice of assessment or reassessment." So there are mechanisms for the transfer of credits when a taxpayer moves between provinces which should be consulted.

Hope this helps

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.
