“when calculating the supplement for new immigrant, the income used to calculate the supplement is the income from page 1 of T1 (full year worldwide net income), instead of just income from line 23600. Taxcycle used the income from line 23600, where it indicate ‘Net income of the spouse or commom-law partner from page 1 of the return’. Is there a way to fix this instead of overide”
I may be missing something, but your client does not appear to meet the definition of “eligible individual”, particularly with respect to requirement (a) in that definition pursuant to S122.51(1).
("(a) who is resident in Canada throughout the year (or, if the individual dies in the year, throughout the portion of the year before the individual’s death);")
Hence to calculate a claim for a refundable medical expense tax credit by means of override would appear to be claiming a credit to which he is not entitled.
If this is the case, he may run into the problem of Section 239(1.1)“Every person who obtains or claims a refund or credit under this Act to which the person or any other person is not entitled… is guilty of an offence and, …
(h) both the fine described in paragraph 239(1.1)(g) and imprisonment for a term not exceeding 2 years.”
Now I may be wrong, but I cannot see anything that overrides S122.51(1).
