You’ll see the following error message on the ERRORS page in H&R Block’s 2016 tax software if you’re claiming a donation you made to the United Nations or one of its agencies but you didn’t earn any income in 2016:
Since you didn’t have any income for 2016, you won’t be able to claim the donations you made to the United Nations or its agencies this year. Let’s take a moment to go back and remove this amount from the Donations page. Remember, you can carry forward your donations for up to 5 years and claim them in a year you have income. [error code: 453]
How do I fix this?
To correct this error, return to the Donations and gifts (Schedule 9) page in H&R Block’s tax software and delete the entry relating to your donation to the United Nations or its agencies. Remember, you can carry forward your donations up to 5 years to use in a year you have income.
Note: You can find the Donations and gifts (Schedule 9) page under the OTHER icon of the PREPARE tab.
