Ontario, Canada.I have been taking care of my ex until we separated in 2017. I have been separated (but not legally) less than 90 days as of Dec 31, 2017. Do I declare him as a spouse or an ex-spouse? I need to deduct expenses I incurred on his behalf as well as the personal allowance for a spouse, but should I delete him from my tax profile altogether?
