In this tutorial we are going to be walking through the interview setup. This page sets up how you are going to approach your return. It will help to determine what prompts you may see for the rest of the return. For students who did not have an income in 2013, click this box. Don’t worry about any of these.

You will be declaring them as income but they don’t actually come into the income calculation as you will see later. If you receive the Universal Child Care Benefit, select this box.
