Error Message 258: RC267_RC268_RC269_CAN_ONLY_HAVE_ONE

You will see the following error message in H&R Block’s 2016 tax software if you entered your contributions to a foreign pension plan or to a U.S. retirement plan on more than one form:

You can't report contributions to a foreign pension plan/U.S. retirement plan on more than one form. On the Pension Plan and Investments page, please choose the RC267, RC268, or RC269 form (whichever applies to the situation) and uncheck the other(s). [error code: 258]

How do I fix this?

To correct the error, enter the contributions you made to a foreign pension plan or a U.S. retirement plan on only one of the following forms (whichever is applicable):

  • Contributions to a United States retirement plan – temporary assignments (RC267)
  • Contributions to a United States retirement plan – cross-border commuters (RC268)
  • Contributions to a foreign pension plan or social security arrangement (RC269)

Note: The above forms can be found under the PENSION PLAN AND INVESTMENTS icon of the PREPARE tab.
