double counting rrsp contributions

My RRSP tax receipt has two boxes.

One has my RRSP amount contributed in taxation year 2014

The other is called "Paid within 60 days after end of 2014".

For the first box does that include contributions made Jan 1 to March 1 2014? If so then I already included that amount in my 2013 tax return and I should be deducting this amount so I don't report it again in for my 2014 tax return. It comes down to the definition of "taxation year 2014". Is it Jan 1, 2014 to Dec 31, 2014 or March 1, 2014 to Dec 31, 2014?

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.
