You’ll see the following warning message in H&R Block’s 2016 tax software if, on form T1M: Moving expenses deduction, you reported moving expenses but you didn’t report any income earned from employment or self-employment activities in the new work location nor did you report any income from scholarships, bursaries, fellowships, research grants, and prizes for achievement (if you moved to study full time):
We can’t claim moving expenses on your federal return because you haven’t entered an amount for the net income you earned or received in 2016 in your new work or study location. [Warning]
How do I fix this?To correct the error, enter the income you earned or received at the new location into the following field of form T1-M:
- If you moved to start a new job or run a business, enter your net income for the year from your employment or self-employment in the new work location.
- If you moved to study full time, enter your income for the year from your scholarships, bursaries, fellowships, research grants, and prizes for achievement
Note: Form T1-M can be found on the PREPARE tab under the OTHER icon.
