Did you reconcile within 90 days of your separation?

If you and your spouse or common-law partner lived apart due to a breakdown in your relationship but got back together within 90 days, there are no tax implications that you need to worry about. However, if you had custody and control over a dependant and you weren’t living with or being supported by your spouse during the separation, you might be able to claim an amount for the eligible dependant.

Note: If you and your spouse separated and didn’t reconcile within 90 days, there won’t be any tax implications as long as you don’t have any children.
