I have had 2 returns rejected with this error.2252 HPB repayments are less than amount required for repayment. HELP, I can't efile anything


I think the problem is that there are 2 ways to  make repayments under the Home Buyers Plan. 

 The first is to make a contribution  into the RRSP that is at least the same as the amount required or more .

    You would enter and RRSP contributions as usual then scroll down to the bottom of the form and under the Repayments under the HBP and designate the required repayment amount to come from the current contributions. 

2nd option is to have the designated repayment amount included in  the income at line 129.

It appears that perhaps the RRSP contributions are not large enough to cover the required repayment amount so I recommend leaving the too low contributions as contributions and have the actual required amount owing added in as income.  The contributions for the current year help cancel some of the tax implications for the added to income amount but keep it clearer what is happening instead of trying to use the low contributions and then entering the balance as being added to income and not "adding up" to be the full required payment.

Hope this helps

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.
