You will see the following error message in H&R Block’s 2017 tax software if you indicated on the T1212: Statement of Deferred Security Options Benefits page that you had benefits that can no longer be deferred in the year but did not complete the related section on the Schedule 3: Capital gains (or losses) in 2017 page:
You need to complete the Publicly traded shares, mutual fund units, deferral of eligible small business corporation shares, and other shares section in the Schedule 3 because you entered benefits that can no longer be deferred (in the T1212 form). [error code: 188]
How do I fix this?
To fix this error, on the Schedule 3 page, select Publicly traded shares, mutual fund units, deferral of eligible small business corporation shares, and other shares from the list of capital properties you want to report on.
