Where do I claim the RPP contributions made to Union pension plan for leave of absence besides the total listed in box 20 of my T4??

I extended my maternity leave for part of 2017, and purchased back the credit for the leave. I have a T4 from my employer, and a Tax Recept from my Union, but I am not sure where I should claim the additional RPP contribution made.

In Turbo Tax Desktop software, use the RRSP section found in the left hand menu of Easy Steps. Select the "RPP Past Service Contribution" option (see screen shot) and then proceed to provide the required information. The deduction will transfer to Line 207 of the 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.
