In order to arrive at this contribution limit, the CRA calculates the taxpayer's maximum contribution earned for the year according to his or her annual income. It then deduct transfers of certain qualifying income made to the taxpayer's RRSP throughout the year. Finally, the CRA calculates for pension adjustments using past service pension adjustments and adds back pension adjustment reversals and carries forward any unused RRSP deductions that were not used in previous years.
