At the beginning of April, I filed a client’s 2019 and 2020 returns at the same time. I checked the box in TaxCycle that says prior year returns will be filed at the same time but it seems CRA chose to ignore that and assess 2020 first. So of course the RRSP deduction limit was assessed incorrectly. I had to wait 2 weeks for the 2019 return to be assessed and the RRSP updated appropriately on his account, then I submitted an adjustment to his 2020 return to fix their error. That was two weeks ago. Now he has received a letter saying that due to the complex nature of the adjustment request, it’s taking much longer than expected. I don’t understand what’s so complicated about matching his RRSP deduction limit.
This client is overcontributed on his RRSP and I filed a T1OVP in March, perhaps that has something to do with it?
