Schedule 7 Tax Form: RRSPs in Canada

Who should use the CRA Schedule 7 tax form?

This schedule is called RRSP Unused Contributions, Transfers and HBP or LLP Activities.  Unused RRSP contributions appear on your Notice of Assessment form.

Use the Schedule 7 to report your RRSP contributions.

Use the Schedule 7 tax form if you are not deducting all your unused RRSP contributions.

Use Schedule 7 if you will not be deducting all the RRSP contributions you made between March 2 of the previous tax year and March 1 of the current tax year.

Can I use if for income transfers?

The transfers refer to income that was transferred into an RRSP from a registered retirement income fund (RRIF) or a retirement allowance. Use Schedule 7 to declare that transfer.

Does Schedule 7 tax form apply to deductions?

If you have benefited from a home tax deduction and withdrawn money from your RRSP under the Home Buyer’s Plan (HBP), you need to reimburse that money. Use Schedule 7 to indicate the HBP repayments you are making to an existing or to a new RRSP.

If you have benefited from a student tax deduction and withdrawn money from your RRSP under the Lifelong Learning Plan (LLP), you need to reimburse that money. Use Schedule 7 to indicate the LLP repayments you are making to an existing or to a new RRSP.
