rrsp contributions made in first 60 days of 2018 not reported or used in 2017 return, how can they be filed without them creating an efile error when submitting.

Have this reoccurring problem with two receipts issued in January and February of 2018. Of which I have entered as 1st 60 days of 2018 not reported in 2017. Client has the deduction room, but audit is asking for schedule 7 and a T1 adj for these contributions.  Return has failed to e file.

Answer

You will have to file a T1adj or Refile the 2017 return. You can have it applied to the 2017 return or ask to carry forward to 2018. If you carry forward to 2018 you will have to wait to efile the 2018 until the 2017 is changed and the RRSP is showing as undeducted by CRA to avoid an efile error.

People come to ProFile for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
