Deductions – New Residents
If you lived in another Canadian province or territory before moving to Québec, you may be entitled to a deduction for moving expenses. Requirements for this deduction are given in the guide to the income tax return (TP-1.G-V).
As a rule, if you lived in a country other than Canada before moving to Québec, you cannot claim a deduction for moving expenses incurred to come to Québec.
However, you may be entitled to a deduction if you moved to Québec and you received a research grant to attend an institution offering post-secondary or university education. For more information, refer to form TP-348-V, Moving Expenses.
Certain support payments may entitle you to a deduction. For more information, consult the guide to the income tax return (TP-1.G-V) or the brochure The Tax Effects of Separation and Divorce (IN-128-V).
If your spouse on December 31 received eligible retirement income during the year and you were both resident in Canada at the end of the year, you and your spouse may jointly decide to include part of your spouse's eligible retirement income in the calculation of your income.
That amount of income must not, however, exceed 50% of your spouse's eligible retirement income.
