Error Message 236: S9_13A_COUPLED_OVER_MAX

You'll see the following error message in H&R Block’s 2016 tax software if, you're claiming the first-time donor’s super credit and you and your spouse or common-law partner entered an amount that was more than $1,000:

For the first-time donor's super credit, you and your spouse can only claim a combined amount of $1000. Please correct the amount you entered for you or your spouse. [error code: 236]

How do I fix this?

To correct this error, enter the correct amount of your and your spouse’s or common-law partner’s donation amounts. The combined maximum you and your spouse or common-law partner can claim under the first-time donor’s super credit is $1,000.
