How Do I fix error 2051 " Your client may be entitled to a CPP/QPP overpayment, but no claim was made at
Field 448.


1 person found this helpful


The filed return gets rejected with efile error 2051 in a situation where taxpayer is over 65; collecting CPP and still employed .  In such cases the preparer needs to call CRA help desk; check if the taxpayer has opted out of CPP (form CPT30 filed with CRA) and provide document controt number to the HelpDesk agent for comparing the date entered in the taxpayer's return for opting out of CPP with what CRA has on file.

Hope this helps.

Thank you.

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.
