HBP page does not show correct amount of RRSP contributions for 2014 eligible for repayment.

This is a calculated field but it shows a different, smaller number (~$330) than the sum of my RRSP slips that I just entered on the previous RRSP slips page (~$950).  SHouldn't these numbers be exactly the same?

You are correct. We cannot use spousal RRSP amount for HBP repayment.  It has to come from your own RRSP. Now, if you don't have enough in your RRSP for HBP repayment, then just enter a smaller amount as repayment and the difference is RRSP income.  You may have to talk to CRA before to netfile your tax return.  This HBP may cause an error with the netfile.  CRA has got in your account the minimum HBP repayment you have to claim in your tax return.

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.
