On the MB479 Taxcycle tries to determine which spouse would benefit most from making the claim for the Manitoba tax credits, and when it is neither it usually selects the primary tax payer.
I have a situation when the primary taxpayer is being claimed as a dependent on the other (amounts transferred from spouse) and therefor does not qualify. Taxcycle is selecting a taxpayer that does not qualify to make the claim. I have to override “Which spouse should make the claim”.
I know as a tax preparer i need to check these things out and not completely rely on the software, but
I think TaxCycle should have caught this and selected the right taxpayer.
