What is the Quick Slip feature and how does it work?

To help you complete your return faster than ever before, H&R Block’s Tax Software is introducing an exciting new feature for 2016 called Quick Slip Entry.

This feature allows you to enter the information from your various federal slips (like your T4), your Québec relevé slips (like your RL-31), your RRSP or PRPP contributions, repayments to the homebuyers’ plan and lifelong learning plan, and your unused amounts from previous years in one convenient location.

The way it works is simple; type the name of your slip or receipt into the search field. Once the desired item is highlighted, you can either select it with your mouse or press Enter to continue. You’ll then be directed to the appropriate page within the software.

Note: You can also search for your slips by entering related keywords. For example, you can type "job", "salary", or "wages" into the search field if you'd like to enter the information from your T4 and/or your RL-1.

Note: The Quick Slip feature can only be used to enter the information from the slips and receipts you received from your employer, the government, your bank, or another organization. Anything else, like credits, deductions, and expenses (things like the public transit credit, disability supports deduction, and medical expenses) can all be entered in the PREPARE section of the software.

 

Can I use the QUICK SLIP page to claim credits and expenses on behalf of a dependant?

No. For the credits and expenses that you’re claiming on behalf of a dependant, click the name of the dependant located on the left-hand navigation panel. Once there, we’ll help you select the situations that applied to your dependant in 2016 and walk you through the process of claiming the relevant credit and deduction amounts.

 

What if I accidentally enter the same information twice?

Removing duplicated information from your return is easy. The QUICK SLIP page lists all the slips and receipts you entered. All you have to do is locate the duplicated information and click the Delete button located next to it:
