Error Message 214: T1_141_MUST_BE_POSITIVE

You'll see the following error message in H&R Block’s 2016 tax software if, on the Non-capital losses page, you're claiming restricted farm losses for 2016 but you have not reported any income from farming activities during the year:

You entered the amount of restricted farm losses to claim for 2016, but didn’t report any farming income (on form T2042: Statement of farming activities). [error code: 214]

How do I fix this?

To correct the error, be sure to tell us about the farming income you earned during the year by completing form T2042: Statement of farming activities in H&R Block’s tax software.

Note: You can find form T2042 under the EMPLOYMENT icon of the PREPARE tab, provided you select the checkbox labelled I worked for myself on the LET'S TALK ABOUT 2016 page.
