Filing my 2019 Tax return error code 2123

I purchased turbotax 2019 today because im catching up on taxes (bad I know).

Im trying to netfile in it now and im getting code #2123, saying I claimed an employment insurance overpayment. This likely happened because I had switched jobs that year so I had two different employers.

How can I go about fixing this so I can netfile? I'd really prefer to not have to do this by snail mail.

many thanks!

Filing my 2019 Tax return error code 2123

Error 2123 arises only if you are filing your return more than three years after the end of the tax year.

To remove the EI overpayment amount on line 45000 of your return:

  • Make note of the amount on line 31200 of your Schedule 1 (in the Documents section).
  • Enter the amount from line 31200 in box 18 of your T4 slip (regardless of what was there originally). If you have multiple T4 slips, ensure that the total of box 18 does not exceed the amount on line 31200.

Thank you for choosing TurboTax.
