What information do I enter if I have a designated transfer from RRIF to RRSP in the first 60 days of the year?

Since the transfer happened in the first 60 days of the year, I received an RRSP receipt showing it as a "designated transfer under section 60L(v)", but no T4RIF. With only the RRSP receipt entered into TurboTax (by automated download from CRA), TurboTax forces an RRSP deduction (giving me an inflated return) and also gives me an eFile error.

I have found an answer to a similar situation where someone with a retiring allowance during the first 60 days faced the same problem, having the RRSP receipt with no T4 showing the income.  

The advice provided was to enter the RRSP receipt as a normal RRSP contribution, not a designated amount, and NOT take an RRSP deduction. Then next year, when the T4RIF is issued, deduct the RRSP amount, showing it as a designated amount.

Does this same solution apply to a designated RRIF-to-RRSP transfer during the first 60 days of the year?

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.
