Can't NETFILE because PPIP insurable earnings exceed $2,000 (T4 Box 55)

Recommended Posts



I am a resident of Quebec and work in Ontario.


- I receive a T4 that includes all of my income, deductions, etc.

- I receive an RL-1 that includes taxable earnings (employer paid health premiums, membership re-imbursements) and also includes additional voluntary QC taxes that I have withheld from my pay.


I am trying to NETFILE but I receive the following error message on my Federal return:

"You cannot currently NETFILE your federal return.

The total of your PPIP insurable earnings exceeds $2,000 and you have no PPIP premiums (T4 box 55)."


I have NETFILED the same situation in the past using UFILE software without errors. In previous years, a workaround was to enter $0.00 in box 55 and it would then allow NETFILE to be submitted. I tried that "trick" this year but still receive the error message that my return can't be NETFILED.


Would you be able to help? I was searching the forums and came across the same issue but there was no posted solution:
