I collect CPP (I'm 68) but work part time. I want to pay CPP on employment, not on self employment.

I pay CPP on my T4.  I collect CPP (I'm 68) but work part time. I want to pay CPP on employment but not on my self employment income.  This year Turbotax refunds my T4 CPP OR charges employment and self employment  (employer and employee amounts) as well.  What changed from last year?  Last year it accepted that I paid CPP on employment which has the result of increasing my CPP benefit payment monthly.  I filled out the boxes that say did I tell my employer and fill out a form (no), and do I want to pay on self employment (no). GLITCH?


From what I can see, it does not appear to be separate issues.  You either pay CPP or you don't.  Most of the information and forms talk about employment versus self-employment, but I'm not seeing a way to choose one and not the other.

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
