Why do I have a social benefits (EI) repayment showing on line 235 when I haven't worked in 8 years?

Social benefit repayment (line 235) isn't correlated with not working for 8 years. There are two instances where line 235 shows up:

A ) if you receive Old Age pension (reported on T4A-OAS)

or 

B) if you receive employment insurance benefit (T4-E)

See this link http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca/tx/ndvdls/tpcs/ncm-tx/rtrn/cmpltng/ddctns/lns206-236/235/s-eng.html if you received T4A-OAS. 

See this link http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca/tx/ndvdls/tpcs/ncm-tx/rtrn/cmpltng/ddctns/lns206-236/235/ei-eng.html if you received T4-E.


If your situation falls under any of the two categories above, line 235 will be generated. It is a calculated field so do not remove it. Contact us if none of the two situations apply & you still see line 235.

Good afternoon,

Thank you for your question. Verify that you have not entered a T5007 under the income section of your return.
