Modify RRSP Info On Last Years Return

  I know this isn't a TurboTax specific question but it does involve it.  Lat year I filed my taxes and all went well as usual using TurboTax. I live in Quebec and contribute to the FTQ which is a LSVCC and an RRSP.

 They sent me a slip that was in addition to my first 60 days for the year as they miscalculated. I completely forgot about it and was was hoping to add them to this years return. 


 If I understand correctly I have to go back to last years return and ask for a correction.  I see on the CRA website that I can request it. Im not sure about Rev Quebec but am guessing that its similar. 


 What lines would I need to change so that I could carry it forward to this years return?


Thanks guys for the help. 

Answer

I can't help you with Quebec-specific information, but I do know that the easiest way to amend a previous year's tax return is through the CRA "My Account" feature. Setting up this account for the first time is a bit of a pain, as they insist on (snail) mailing you a confirmation code, rather than through email. Once your account is set up, it's fairly simple to go in and make updates. I only did this once a few years ago, so I can't remember the exact details.

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.
