Answer:

Yes, the formal charge on #"N"# in the #N,N#-dimethylmethyleneiminium ion is +1.

Explanation:

You understand it correctly.

#"Formal charge" = ["No. of valence electrons on isolated atom"] - ["lone pair electrons" + "No. of bonds"]#

The ion has no lone pairs and four bonds, so

#"FC" = 5 - (0+4) = +1#
