Alimony, separation, or child support payments are reported as a separate field, ALMI_. Previously this income was included in Other income, OI.
1987 Provincial Family Allowance payments for residents of Quebec become non-taxable. They are no longer included in the Family Allowance received field, FA, and therefore are no longer included in XTIRC.
