Error code 217

You'll see the following error message in H&R Block’s 2018 tax software if, you’re claiming the Ontario co-operative education tax credit and entered the expenses you paid to hire co-op students but didn’t enter the number of work placements for which you’re claiming the tax credit:

To claim the Ontario co-operative education tax credit, you need to enter the number of eligible work placements your business or partnership is claiming for this credit. Let’s go back and enter this number. [error code: 217]

How do I fix this?

Enter the number of eligible work placements you’re claiming for this tax credit. You can enter this in the field labelled, How many eligible work placements is your business or partnership claiming under the Ontario co-operative education tax credit program? on the Ontario tax credits for self-employed individuals page.

Note: You can find the Ontario tax credits for self-employed individuals page under the EMPLOYMENT icon on the PREPARE tab.
