You'll see the following error message in H&R Block’s 2016 tax software if you reported farming income for the year and on the Non-capital losses page you entered an amount for restricted farm losses that was more than your total farming income for 2016:
The amount of restricted farm losses to claim for 2016 can’t be higher than the total farming income for 2016. Please correct the amount of losses you entered. [error code: 215]
How do I fix this?
To correct the error, enter the correct amount of restricted farm losses in the field labelled on the Non-capital losses page. This amount cannot be more than the total farming income that you entered on form T2042: Statement of Farming Activities.
Note: You can find the Non-capital losses page under the PENSION PLAN AND INVESTMENTS icon of the PREPARE tab.
