Line 232 - Income amounts repaid

If in 2018 you repaid amounts you received and reported as income (other than salary or wages) for 2018 or a previous year, you can claim most of these amounts on line 232 of your return for 2018:

  • old age security (OAS) benefits paid directly to Service Canada shown in box 20 of your T4A(OAS) slip
  • employment insurance (EI) benefits repaid to Service Canada or the payer of your benefits, and shown in box 30 of your T4E slip. If EI benefits were reduced to repay an amount, your T4E slip will show the net amount you received, so you cannot claim a deduction
  • Canada Pension Plan or Quebec Pension Plan benefits
  • scholarships, bursaries or research grants
  • retiring allowances
  • repayment of a shareholder's loan
  • repayments made by you in the year for a policy loan under a life insurance policy
  • income from a registered disability savings plan


If you repaid, under a court order, support payments that you reported on line 128, claim the repayment on line 220.

If you repaid employment income, see line 229.

If you repaid income tax refund interest, see line 221.

Completing your tax return

Claim on line 232 the amounts you repaid. In the space to the left of the line, specify the deduction you are claiming. If you have more than one amount, or you want to explain your deduction more fully, attach a note to your paper return.
