You will see the following error message on the ERRORS page in H&R Block’s 2016 tax software if you have entered an amount in the field next to the label Exempt Canada Pension Plan (CPP) benefits on the First Nations and Reserve Lands page but did not enter the amount of taxable CPP/QPP benefits you received in box 20 of the T4A(P): Statement of Canada Pension Plan Benefits page:

Because you reported tax-exempt CPP benefits, you need to enter the amount of taxable CPP/QPP benefits in box 20, as shown on the T4A(P) slip received. [error code: 276]

How do I fix this?

To correct the error, enter the correct amount of CPP/QPP benefits you received as shown on your T4A(P) paper slip into the T4A(P) page of the tax software.

Note: To enter your T4A(P) slip into the software, go to the QUICK ENTRY tab and click on the QUICK SLIP icon. Enter "T4A(P)" in the search box and click +Add. You can find the First Nation and Reserve Lands page on the PREPARE tab under the OTHER icon.
