Error Message 240: T10141_NEEDS_SELFEMPLOYMENT_INCOME

You'll see the following error message in H&R Block’s 2016 tax software if, you're claiming the British Columbia training tax credit for employers but you haven’t entered any self-employment income for 2016:

You can't claim the British Columbia training tax credit for employers if you didn't have a business. Please report your self-employment income or delete form T1014-1 from your return. [error code: 240]

How do I fix this?

To correct the error, enter your business information in H&R Block’s tax software. To do this, select the checkbox I worked for myself on the LET'S TALK ABOUT 2016 page, then click the EMPLOYMENT icon on the PREPARE tab. Under the BUSINESS AND SELF-EMPLOYMENT INCOME section, select the option that applies to you.

Note: If you entered information on the British Columbia training tax credit page in error, simply remove the data entered. Then, on the Employment and self-employment page under the EMPLOYMENT icon of the PREPARE tab, deselect the option for the tax credit.
