Error code 260

You'll see the following error message in H&R Block’s 2018 tax software if on your T4: Statement of remuneration paid page, you entered an amount in box 81 but did not complete the T2125: Statement of business and professional activities page:

You need to report your business or professional income on the Statement of business or professional activities (T2125) page because you entered an amount for box 81 on the T4 page. You’ll find the T2125 page in the EMPLOYMENT section under the PREPARE tab. If you live in Québec, the page is called Business or professional income and expenses (T2125 & TP-80-V). [error code: 260] 

How do I fix this?

To correct the error, complete the T2125: Statement of business and professional activities page, or if you live in Québec, complete the Business or professional income and expenses (T2125 & TP-80-V) page.

If your T4 paper slip has an amount entered in box 81, you must enter this amount on the T4 page and on the T2125 page in the tax software.  The amount in box 81 is the gross income you received during the year as a placement or employment agency worker, and this must be reported as business or professional income on your tax return.

Note: To enter your T4 slip into the software, go to the QUICKENTRY tab and click on the QUICK SLIP icon. Enter "T4" in the search field and either click the highlighted selection or press Enter to continue. The T2125 can be found under the EMPLOYMENT icon of the PREPARE tab.
