You will report this income on line 130 of your 2014 return.  Because you claimed this RRSP contribution on your 2013 return, you have already received a tax benefit from this contribution and you have no offsetting RRSP contribution to claim again this income for 2014.  Also, because the amount was claimed for 2013, it affects your RRSP contribution room.  If you had waited to claim the deduction for 2014, it could have been deducted without affecting your RRSP contribution room.

You have 2 options.  1) request an adjustment to your prior year return and advise that you want to carry forward this amount to 2014.  Be advised that this will result in a balance owing for 2013.  However, once your receive your Notice of Re-Assessment, it will note unused RRSP contributions available for 2014, which you can then use to off set this retiring allowance in 2014.   2) leave the 2013 as filed and simply report the allowance as other income.  If you choose to adjust your 2013 return, please see http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca/tx/ndvdls/tpcs/ncm-tx/chngrtrn-eng.html

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.
