Filing Your Return
Real Estate 

Make Sure You Report Repayments to RRSP Home Buyer's Plan or Lifelong Learning Plan!

Income Tax Act s. 146.01(3), 146.02(3)

If you have made repayments to your RRSP for the Home Buyer's Plan (HBP) or Lifelong Learning Plan (LLP), you must complete Schedule 7 on your income tax return.  If you fail to designate the RRSP payments as repayments of HBP or LLP, Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) will add to your income the minimum payment that was required for the year.  Your RRSP contributions will reduce your unused RRSP deduction room carried forward, if they are deducted as regular RRSP contributions.

If you have not completed Schedule 7 properly in past years where you have made contributions to your RRSP, you should file a request to adjust your previous returns.  See the article on changing your tax return once you have already filed it.

For more information on the Lifelong Learning Plan, see Canada Revenue Agency topic Lifelong Learning Plan (LLP).

Canadian Tax Calculator - HBP and LLP Repayments

If you are using the Canadian Income Tax and RRSP Savings Calculator, payments into your RRSP for the HBP or the LLP should not be entered into the calculator.  However, if you have not made the minimum required payment for either the HBP or the LLP, then any shortfall from this amount must be entered as income - this can be entered on the "other income" line.


Tax Tip:  Make sure you complete Schedule 7 if you have made repayments to the HBP or LLP, otherwise you lose RRSP deduction room.
