Your sister can't claim a deduction for her common-law spouse on her tax return. His income is too high. The claim for spouse or common-law partner is based on the spouse's income. The Federal claim cuts off when the spouse's income is greater than 11,138. There is also a corresponding provincial credit, but your sister won't be able to claim those either for the same reason. FRO might get involved even if he doesn't file his tax returns. They can garnish bank accounts and wages. Plus, employers are required to report to the government who their employees are (names and Social Insurance Numbers). Whenever you get a copy of a T4, your employer is required to send a copy to the CRA, otherwise the company is not allowed to claim the deduction for the Salary expense.
