You will see the following error message in H&R Block’s 2017 tax software if, on the RC383: Tax-exempt earned income for a pooled registered pension plan page, you designated an HBP and/or LLP repayment amount that is more than the amount of PRPP contributions you're reporting:
The PRPP contributions you want to designate as your repayment under the HBP and/or LLP can't be more than the total amount of contributions you made to the PRPP. Let's go back and correct your repayment amount(s). [error code: 255]
How do I fix this?
To correct the error, return to the RC383 page and make sure you’ve entered the right repayment amounts. Remember, the amount of PRPP contributions you’re designating as HBP and/or LLP repayments can’t be more than your total PRPP contributions.
Note: The RC383 page can be found under the PENSION PLAN AND INVESTMENTS icon of the PREPARE tab.
