Lines 30000 to 30450, 30500 – Personal amounts

If the deceased was a resident of Canada from January 1 to the date of death, claim the full personal amounts.

If the deceased was a resident of Canada for part of the time from January 1 to the date of death, you may have to prorate the personal amounts. To do so, multiply the personal amount by the number of days the deceased lived in Canada and divide the result by the number of days in the year. The result is the amount you can claim on the deceased's return. If the deceased immigrated to Canada in the year of death, see Newcomers to Canada. If the deceased emigrated from Canada in the year of death, see Leaving Canada (emigrants).

The credits referred to in this section are federal credits, which are claimed on the deceased's return. If the deceased was a resident of a province or territory other than Quebec, use the appropriate form included in the income tax package to calculate their provincial or territorial tax credits.
