You’ll see the following error message in H&R Block’s 2018 tax software if, on the Rental property income (T776/TP-128-V) page, you indicated that you lived in the property and entered your personal portion for eligible expenses but didn’t enter the total amount paid in the year:
You must enter the total amount you paid for each expense you had for your rental property (not just the personal portion of each expense). You must also ensure that the total amount paid is higher than the personal portion. You’ll need to add or correct the total amount paid. [error code: RQ291]
How do I fix this?
To correct the error, return to the Rental property income page and enter the total amount paid for each eligible expense. The personal portion of these expenses can’t be higher than the total amount paid.
Note: The Rental property income page can be found under the OTHER icon on the PREPARE tab.
