You’ll see the following error message in H&R Block’s 2017 tax software if you’re filing a return separate from your spouse or common-law partner (who is eligible to claim the disability tax credit) and you entered the provincial disability amount that your spouse is transferring to you but didn’t enter the federal disability transfer amount:
You entered the provincial amount of your spouse’s disability amount being transferred to you, but you also need to enter the federal amount being transferred. [error code: 148]
How do I fix this?
To correct the error, return to the Your spouse’s return page and enter the federal disability amount that your spouse is transferring to you into the designated field. You can find this amount on the federal Schedule 1 of your spouse’s 2017 tax return.
Note: You can find the Your spouse’s return page under the REQUIRED icon of the PREPARE tab.
