How to remove unused RRSP contributions that were withdrawn with a T1-OVP?

Last year my wife had no income and a $0 limit on RRSP contributions, but contributed anyway. (We messed up the paperwork opening a spousal RRSP and made her the contributor instead of the annuitant...) So, the amount she contributed was over her RRSP contribution limit and was also listed as an unusued contribution since she had no taxes owing. We withdrew the contribution and filed a T1-OVP to correct the overpayment.

TurboTax is still listing the "unused contribution" carried forward from last year. This is triggering the warning: "Confirm your unused RRSP/PRPP contribution amount corresponds to amount B of your 2014 RRSP/PRPP Deduction Limit Statement, found on your CRA 2013 Notice of Assessment form." (Amount B is $0, and since the entire unused contribution was withdrawn, the unused contribution should now be $0 as well.) How can I delete the unused contribution that was carried forward?

Answer

That's because TurboTax does an estimate of what your unused portion is. You can go in and adjust to what your notice of assessment has listed. Hope this helps!

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.
