T2125 Spousal Partnership Expenses

Why does the tax owing reduce or refund increase when Vehicle or home office expense is not shared? By not sharing it works out better for my clients, BUT I do not want to place them or myself into a liability position. I have one situation where it is a spousal 50/50 and another which is 65/35

Thank you

If you had said Yes to sharing home office expenses, then TaxCycle will copy the expenses to the spouses return and split the claim. But if you then change that question to No, don’t share expenses, the amounts have already been copied over and instead of a split claim, you will now have a full claim on the spouse. You will need to delete the expenses for home office on the spouse if you don’t wish to claim them.

Thank you Darlene. Cleared it up for me.
