Nanny live in caregiver room deduction use

Just wondering how to properly apply the $31.70 weekly room deduction?
Example. How / where would I apply it if I were using the CRA online remittance calculator?

Do you mean you charge the nanny for her room right? if so, then the nanny can claim rent expense when she file her income tax.

It does not impact remittance because the room deduction comes off the GROSS amount which the calculations are done. THer is a box that you would fill in the room and board amount in the T4 you issue.
On a 'smart' device that isn't always so smart. So please forgive the autocorrects and typos. If it brothers you, then don't read my posts, but don't waste my time correcting me. If you can get past the typos, then my posts generally have some value.
