This formula works for me except that if 'oas recovery tax'!D5 is greater than a certain threshold, in this case 125650, then it is returning a negative amount. I am hoping that there is a modification to the formula that will ensure that it never returns a value less than 0 (zero).

Code:
=IF(D35>'oas recovery tax'!D5,D41-(0.15*(D35-'oas recovery tax'!D5)/12),D41)

How to change case of text in Excel?
Use =UPPER() for upper case, =LOWER() for lower case, and =PROPER() for proper case. PROPER won't capitalize second c in Mccartney

Maybe...

=MAX(0,IF(D35>'oas recovery tax'!D5,D41-(0.15*(D35-'oas recovery tax'!D5)/12),D41))
