13 – Change in situation
If your situation on December 31, 2019, is different from the one you entered on line 12 of your return for 2018, make sure you enter the date of the change on line 13. Doing so ensures that any necessary changes will be made (for example, adjusting the amount of your family allowance payments from Retraite Québec).
Your situation did not necessarily change if your spouse died in 2019. For example, you should check "You had a spouse" on line 12 and leave line 13 blank if all of the following statements are true:
- Your spouse on December 31, 2018, died in 2019.
- You were not living separate and apart from your spouse at the time of his or her death.
- You did not have a new spouse on December 31, 2019.
