For those filing tax that have a loved one in extended care, please be aware that the classification of separated only applies to couple voluntarily separating and not for those having to go into care facilities.
I know that does not make sense and will make it an issue if it is not changed by the next election. If you do make this claim you will be billed for any tax credits received once your loved one passes away.
The wording on the forms is very poor. Even my tax preparers once my wife went into care did not get this right.
