I was reassessed and my RRSP limit for 2017 went up from the original allowance. I transferred my 2016 return. How do I update the RRSP limit to reflect the change?


Here is how you can change the RRSP deduction limit in TurboTax:

If your RRSP deduction amount on your Notice of Assessment does not match what TurboTax transferred from your prior year return, you need to update the amount in your current year return to match the amount on your NOA.


To jump directly to the RRSP deduction limit step:

  1. Select Find in the upper-right hand corner.
  2. In the Find window, type RRSP Profile.
  3. Select RRSP Profile from the list and then select Go.
  4. On the RRSP Profile step, select Continue to reach the RRSP deduction limit step.


* If you don’t see the Find button, you may not have completed the Setting Up/Introduction step of your return. Continue through the Setting Up/Introduction step until the Find button appears.

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.
