You'll see the following error message in H&R Block’s 2016 tax software if, you entered employment expenses as an employee who earns commissions on the TP-59-V: Employment expenses of salaried employees and employees who earn commission form, but did not enter an amount in box M of your RL-1 page:

You need to enter an amount in box M (Commissions included in the amount in box A or box R) on the RL-1 page, since you entered employment expenses as an employee who earns commissions on the TP-59-V (Employment expenses of salaried employees and employees who earn commissions) form. [error code: RQ196]

How do I fix this?

To correct the error, enter the amount from box M (Commissions included in the amount in box A or box R) of your RL-1 paper slip into the RL-1 page of the tax software.
