Parents' Income Information

A photo of Anonymous Anonymous
My dad works overseas so on his tax return form, it says $0. My mom is unemployed so on her tax return form, it says $0. Do I put $0 for both of them when filling out OSAP?

I haven't filled out OSAP yet, but on the bursary applications it said to put whatever it says on "line ___", which would in fact be $0.

But then it asked "If your parents' income is lower than $6,000 please explain how you are able to live day-to-day" or something along the lines of that.

That's where you could put it.

Does OSAP say something similar?

Oh I don't know. I was just doing the OSAP estimator and it asked me the same question so I was curious what to do when the real situation presented itself.

In any case, do you think they'll frown upon not mentioning my dad working overseas, instead saying I can live day to day normally through my grandmom's old age pension?

That could be under the "Terms of Service" or w/e they call it, you know the big long legal things people never read. I don't know what they would do if they found out- you'd be lucky if all they did was refuse to give you any more money, it could be worse.

Okay, haha. My overall estimation was at nearly $9,000 if I put in my dad made $20,000 a year and my mom zero.

Thanks :)

On the parental section there is a part for taxable income and another part for non taxable income. Any income that is on a Canadian income tax would go under ' taxable'. Any money made elsewhere - such as your dad's - would go under the non taxable section.

The first line of the OSAP definition of Gross Income is below. I think that pretty well sums it up. Not reporting it on your application is fraud.

"You must provide all taxable and non-taxable income from all sources, world-wide ... "
