Didn't cra charge 1% each month on over contribution? Also I thought the room is against 2020?

The deduction is just deferred until the 2021 tax return. Report it on the 2020 tax return (first 60 days of 2021 line) as a contribution but don't claim the deduction in 2020. If you have no room in 2020 the deduction wouldn't be allowed anyways. The deduction is carried forward.

Ok thanks. It seems to me that only apply for 2000 over contribution?DaveTheDude wrote: ↑ The deduction is just deferred until the 2021 tax return.

Claim as much of the $6000 for 2020 as you can (plus $2000). Use the remainder for 2021. (You must report all contributions as per slips received, but you only need to claim the amount that will not put you into overcontribution.)

Thanks. Feel better

No form is required because you will not have over contributed. Assuming you will have $4K of new RRSP contribution room available in 2021. Your tax software should reveal that on doing the 2020 tax return.

Thanks for taking your time to answer itThalo wrote: ↑ What's really going to happen is that you'll get your 2020 notice of assessment (online) after filing your taxes and it will probably say something like:
New RRSP contribution room earned based on 2020 income: $10,000 (A)
Unused RRSP contribution from a prior year: $6000 (B)
If B is higher than A you may have over-contributed.
I didn't check exactly what it says, but something along those lines. So basically if you earned $10K of contribution room for 2021 based on your 2020 income, and your over-contribution was $6000 then they balance out.
Had you made the over-contribution in December, you'd likely owe 1% x $4000 (the excess minus $2000). Twice that if it was done in November... etc.

Yes, as long as where you work, you don't have a company pension plan since this (pension adjustment) amount will reduce your RRSP contribution limit.

I know about credit cards from having/using them since my early twenties as well as reading RedFlagDeals on new credit card products. For example, I would never have known that Canadians were eligible for a TD Bank NA Visa without RedFlagDeals and would have continued to use my TD Canada Trust US dollar Visa which offers no points and very limited benefits.
