Line 31270 – Completing your tax return
Enter $5,000 on line 31270 of your return, if you are not splitting the amount with your spouse or common-law partner.
You and your spouse or common-law partner can split the claim but the combined total cannot be more than $5,000.
When more than one person is entitled to the amount (for example when two people jointly buy a home), the total of all amounts claimed cannot be more than $5,000.
Filing electronically or a paper return
Keep all your documents in case the CRA asks to see them later.
