In 2018 my client got a T4 slip with a Box 66 amount of $15,000 (due to employment severance). She contributed $30,000 to an RRSP and got 2 RRSP receipts, one for $15,000 (her max RRSP contribution room for 2018) and one for $15,000 as a 60L Transfer. Her RRSP room was reduced by $15,000. A couple weeks ago I got ammended RRSP receipts for 2018, with an RRSP contribution of $20,000 and $10,000 in RRSP 60L Transfer. This came with a letter from the investment co. that the instructions they received from my client’s employer only allowed $10,000 in an RRSP transfer and thus they are re-issuing the slips. Client called the employer who insist that their box 66 on her T4 is correct- allowing $15,000 in transfers. - Note this is a big corporation and the dept. issuing T4’s is not the same as those issuing instructions to investment firms re severance. Neither the employer or investment company want to budge and re-issue slips so I have something that matches on my end. The bigger problem is that the re-issued 2018 RRSP slips mean that my client overcontributed $5K in her RRSP in 2018, and has no room in 2019 to absorb that as 2019 RRSP’s were already maxed out in 2019 - no more employment income either in 2019 or expected in the future.- Penalties are accumulating. What should I do - which slips take precedence if no one is willing to budge? T4 or RRSP 60L slip? Can I override RRSP contributions designated for transfer amount on the RRSP worksheet (which essentially overrides the T4 box 66 amounts if needed? Any help would be appreciated.
