T4A Box 118 and 135

Recommended Posts

I am not able to complete my tax return as I am getting this message:

! ERROR 1 states "Both fields must be filled. This error prevents tax calculations. Click here to fix."


Unfortunately "Click here to fix" only takes me to the T4A page, but not the specific problem; so I'm not sure what needs to be fixed!

How do I fix this error so I can complete my return?

I would suggest to remove the page and try again.

You received a T4A slip with an amount shown in Box 118 for benefits for premiums paid under provincial hospitalization, medical care insurance, and certain Government of Canada plans from a previous job.

To report this amount, please follow the steps below:

1- In the "Left side menu on the Interview tab", select "Interview setup".

2- In the screen on your right, go to the "Pension" group, check the box for "Pension income. Other income and split pension income (T4A, T4A(OAS), T4A(P), T4A-RCA, T4RSP, T4RIF, T1032)" and click "Next" at the bottom of the page.

3- Return to the "Left side menu on the Interview tab" and select "Pension income, T4A". On the page to your right, choose "T4A - Pension, retirement, annuity, and other income".

4- On the page that appears entitled "T4A - Pension, retirement, annuity and other income", go to line "Other information (click on the triangle to see the list of choices)" located in the middle of the page. Then, from the drop-down menu, choose the option "(118) Medical premium benefits" and enter the amount shown on your T4A slip.

5. For residents of Quebec, you have probably received an RL-1 with an amount of Box O and the RZ Code. If the amount of box O of the RL-1 is different from the one on the T4A slip, click on the "Maple Leaf" icon to the right of the field. A box will appear so that you can enter the Quebec amount.

6. However, if you have not received a document for Quebec, click on the "Maple Leaf" icon to open a field for Quebec and enter "$ 0.00".

7. If you have received another document from the Government of Quebec, please submit a request to indicate which document you have received, specifying all the information concerning this document in order for us to better assist you.

The amount will be entered by the program on line 104 of the federal return (Other employment income) and, for Quebec residents, on line 107 of the Quebec return with code 05 displayed on line 106.
