Thanks for your tax articles. I have one basic question, please.
In the case of provisional tax paid for persons married in community or property, what income amounts does one enter into each IRP6 to ensure that one can claim the rebate twice. I have heard I should enter 100% of our total income in my IRP6 and 50% of that same income in my wife's IRP6?
You either must include 100% of the income in your return and then be taxed accordingly or 50% each and each one of your will be taxed and given the various rebates. IF you put 100% and she puts 50% then there will be an overstatement of income and higher tax paid. The IRP6 does not deal with community of property and therefore you would be over taxed.
