cpp overcontribution form not carrying in properly

I am getting an error that says the CPP contribution at field 308 on Sch 1 plus the CPP overpayment field 448 do not match.  When I look at the T2204 there are no numbers carrying in from the T4.  What is the solution?  enter the numbers and override the calculations?


Hello Phyl,

To correct the error, go to schedule S8 and and respond "YES" to the question "If multiple T4 slips were received, do you elect to pay CPP on underdeducted amounts?"  This question is in the top section on S8 next to line "Attach a copy of this schedule to your return".

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.
