How to show employer's RRSP contribution? According to CRA website employer's contribution to be not included into RRSP deduction.

My company deducted from my salary to my RRSP account 3.5% and additionally benefited 3.5% to my RRSP account which is not shown on my T4. RRSP account. From CRA site I understand that I'm not allowed to deduct my employer's contribution so I will deduct only 3.5%. From other side do I have to show to CRA that I have additional 3.5% employer's contribution? If yes - how I will show employer's contribution in TurboTax without claiming of RRSP deduction for this amount?How to show

I don't know exactly what you saw on the web site, but your employer's portion of the RRSP contribution is claimed exactly as is yours. You should be getting a contribution receipt for the combined amount (or two receipts).

The only thing is that because your employer was contributing to your RRSP directly, it wasn't withholding tax on that money, so you won't be getting a refund on it, you got your tax savings immediately on your pay instead.

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.
