Error code 284

You will see the following error in H&R Block’s 2018 tax software if you indicated on your return that you donated a gift of capital property on the Donations and gifts (Schedule 9) page but did not report the disposition of this property on the Capital gains and losses (Schedule 3) page:

You reported a capital property donation on the Donations and gifts (Schedule 9) page (or, if you live in Québec, the Tax credits for donations and gifts (Schedule 9 & Schedule V) page). You need to report the disposition of this property on the Capital gains (or losses) in 2018 (Schedule 3) page (or, if you live in Québec, the Capital gains and losses (Schedule 3 & Schedule G) page). Make sure you enter the same amounts on both pages. The Schedule 3 page is in the PENSION PLANS AND INVESTMENTS section under the PREPARE tab. [error code: 284]

 

How do I fix this?

To correct the error, report the disposition of the donated capital property on the Schedule 3 (or the Schedule 3 & Schedule G page, if you're a Québec resident). Be sure to enter the same amounts on the Schedule 3/Schedule G and Donations pages.

Note: You can find the Schedule 3 (or the Schedule 3 & Schedule G) page under the PENSION PLANS AND INVESTMENTS icon on the PREPARE tab, provided you added the Investments topic on the IN THIS SECTION page first.
