You'll see the following error message in H&R Block’s 2016 tax software if you're claiming the British Columbia shipbuilding and ship repair industry tax credit for employers but you haven’t entered any self-employment income for the year:
You can’t claim the British Columbia shipbuilding and ship repair industry tax credit for employers if you don’t have a business. Please report your self-employment income or delete form T1014-2 from your return. [error code: 241]
How do I fix this?
To correct the error, enter the information relating to your business 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.
