You will see the following error message in H&R Block’s 2017 tax software if you’re claiming the Ontario self-employment tax credits but didn’t enter any self-employment income on your return:
You must report self-employment income to claim the Ontario tax credits for self-employed individuals. To report your self-employment income, go back to the EMPLOYMENT section under the PREPARE tab and complete the form that applies to your situation. [error code: 204]",
How do I fix this?
To fix this error, return to the EMPLOYMENT section of your return and under BUSINESS AND SELF-EMPLOYMENT INCOME, select the form that’s applicable to your tax situation and report your self-employment income. If you didn’t have any self-employment income in 2017, in the EMPLOYMENT section, deselect the Ontario tax credits for self-employed individuals checkbox to remove it from your return.
Note: You can find the EMPLOYMENT section under the PREPARE tab.
