Line 23600 – Net income
Note: Line 23600 was line 236 before tax year 2019.
Your net income is used to calculate federal and provincial or territorial non-refundable tax credits.
The CRA also uses your net income, and your spouse's or common-law partner's net income if you are married or living common-law, to calculate amounts such as the Canada child benefit, GST/HST credit, social benefits repayment, and certain other credits.
Enter your spouse's or common-law partner's net income on page 1 of your return under "Information about your spouse or common-law partner," if this applies to you. Report their net income, even if it is zero.
If the amount that you calculate for line 23600 of your return is negative, you may have a non-capital loss. Complete Form T1A, Request for Loss Carryback, to calculate your loss and any amount that you may want to carry back to your 2019, 2020, or 2021 returns. Do not file an amended return for the years that you apply the loss to.
