Can the Child Tax Benefit be shared?

My boyfriend has his children 40% of the time and his ex has 60%. She has been receiving all the tax benefits for all 4 children. Can he get some of this to help him raise them also?

Answer

Yes. Child Tax Benefits are regularly shared in these circumstances. You just need to let Canada Revenue Agency know that the children are in shared custody and they will direct the benefits accordingly.
