Error Message 284: S9_339_MUST_REPORT_ON_S3

You will see the following error message in H&R Block’s 2016 tax software if, you indicated on your return that you donated a gift of capital property on the Donations and gifts (Schedule 9) page but did not report the disposition of this property on the Capital gains and losses (Schedule 3) page:

Because you donated a gift of capital property (entered on the Schedule 9: Donations and gifts page), you also need to report the disposition of this property in the Schedule 3 page (Capital gains (or losses) in 2016). Make sure to enter the same amounts in both pages. To find the Schedule 3 page, click the Prepare tab and check the I had investments and/or investment income box on the LET'S TALK ABOUT 2016 page, then click the PENSION PLANS AND INVESTMENTS icon. The Schedule 3 is under the BOUGHT/SOLD SECURITIES OR OTHER PROPERTY heading. [error code: 284]

How do I fix this?

To correct the error, report the disposition of the donated capital property on the Capital gains and losses (Schedule 3) page. Be sure to enter the same amounts on both forms.

Note: You can find the Capital gains and losses (Schedule 3) page under the PENSION PLANS AND INVESTMENTS icon of the PREPARE tab, provided you select the I had investments and/or investment income, or I bought and/or sold property option on the LET'S TALK ABOUT 2016 page.
