Our RRSP limit is showing up as contributions in addition to the contributions we already made. Help!


Firstly, please delete your RRSP contributions so that you can start from the beginning.  Follow the following FAQ for instructions on how to enter your RRSP contributions on your income tax return.

RRSP slips from contributions made between March 2, 2018, and March 1, 2019 (inclusively), as well as contributions made before this that have not already been reported, are entered in TurboTax in the same way.

For an RRSP contribution made before March 2, 2018, report it in the tax return for the tax year in which you made the contribution. You can do this by signing into TurboTax Online for the appropriate tax year and making an adjustment to your return.

To report RRSP contributions made after March 1, 2018, and before March 2, 2019:

  1. Sign in to TurboTax Online.
  2. In the upper-right corner of your screen, select Find*.
  3. In the Find window, type “RRSP profile” in the search field, select it from the list and then select Go.
  4. Select the checkbox for “Made RRSP contributions during 2018 or the first 60 days of 2019,” as well as any other options that apply to you, and then select Continue.
  5. Follow the on-screen prompts and TurboTax will guide you through the steps for entering your RRSP contributions.

*If you don’t see the Find button, it may be that you haven’t completed the Setting Up/Income section of your return. Continue through the Setting Up/Income section and the Find option will appear in the top-right corner of the screen.

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.
