Error code 259

You will see the following error message in H&R Block’s 2018 tax software if on your T4: Statement of remuneration paid page, you selected employment code 11 (placement or employment agency worker) for box 29 but did not enter the related gross income in box 81:

On the T4 page, you need to choose 81 in the Box drop-down menu and enter the amount for box 81 shown on the T4 slip because you chose code 11 for box 29. [error code: 259]

How do I fix this?

To correct the error, enter the gross income amount that is shown on box 81 of the T4 slip you received. To do so, scroll to the bottom of the T4 page in the tax software and select 81 from the Box list. Next, enter the amount in the field labelled Amount.

Note: To enter amounts from your T4 slip into the software, go to the QUICK ENTRY tab and click on the Quick Slip icon. Enter "T4" in the search box then click the highlighted selection or press Enter to continue.
