Alberta resident worked in Alberta had Quebec QPP recorded on T4. Can it be included in CPP?

Client worked in Edmonton for a company based out of Quebec.  Her T4 showed QPP deducted as well as the PPIP.  It also states that the province of employment is QC even though she worked in Alberta.  Can I just enter the QPP amount in the box for CPP in Profile?  She was deducted CPP on her paystubs.

There is a mistake with the calculation of CPP to deduct.  Individuals are taxed based on the province where they work.  Even if the company is in another province, if the employee is working in Alberta, then the payroll taxes will be based on Alberta.  In that situation, it would be CPP that should be deducted.

You need to take it with Canada Revenue.  We are not allowed to change any tax slips.

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.
