You'll see the following warning message in H&R Block’s 2016 tax software if the combined amounts you entered in boxes 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, and 19 exceed the amount you entered in box 20 (taxable CPP/QPP benefits) on the T4A(P): Statement of Canada Pension Plan Benefits page:
The total amounts entered in box 14 (retirement benefit), box 15 (survivor benefit), box 16 (disability benefit), box 17 (child benefit), box 18 (death benefit), and box 19 (post-retirement benefit) can’t be more than the amount entered in box 20 (taxable CPP/QPP benefits). Make sure you entered the amounts shown on the T4A(P) slip correctly. [warning]
