You’ll see the following error message in H&R Block’s 2017 tax software if, on the SPECIAL SITUATIONS page, you claimed a home buyers’ amount that exceeds the maximum claimable:
The home buyers' amount claimed can’t be higher than $5,000. Please correct the amount you entered. [error code: 124]
How do I fix this?
To correct the error, return to the SPECIAL SITUATIONS page in H&R Block’s tax software and enter how much of the home buyers’ amount you would like to claim. This amount can’t be more than the maximum claimable amount of $5,000.
