NS428 incorrectly calculates spousal amount

Nova Scotia Tax and Credits form (NS428) is calculating spousal credits when a client’s marital status is changed in the year to “divorced” but at no point they were married or common-law.


Residents in Nova Scotia update their marital status and enter a date of change in status in 2018.

ProFile calculates the “Spouse or common-law partner” amount on line 5812 even though there is no income reported for the spouse on Schedule 2 and “No” is answered to the question “Is spouse’s net income zero”:
