Error Message 289: MB_HOMEOWNER_NEEDS_SCHOOL_TAX

You will see the following error message in H&R Block’s 2016 tax software if, when claiming the Manitoba school tax credit for homeowners you indicated you were a homeowner at the end of the year, but did not enter the school tax assessed for your primary home:

Since you indicated you were a homeowner at the end of 2016, you need to enter the school tax assessed for your primary home to claim the Manitoba school tax credit for homeowners. [error code: 289]

How do I fix this?

To correct the error, enter the school tax assessed for your primary home in Manitoba on the Manitoba school tax credit for homeowners page in the tax software.

Note: You can find the Manitoba school tax credit for homeowners page under the OTHER icon of the PREPARE tab, provided your date of birth on the Your personal information page under the GET STARTED tab indicates that you're 65 years of age or older.
