T4 Tax Form: Salaried Income in Canada

What is a T4 slip?

If you are a salaried employee, the T4 tax form is used by your employer to indicate what you have been paid before deductions, as well as your CPP, QPP, EI contributions as well as other amounts deducted from your pay cheque during the tax year.

When do employers send out the T4 tax slips?

They have to send them by February 28 at the latest. If you change jobs, make sure your former employer has a current address so they can send you a T4 slip.

CRA My Account holders may also access their T4 slips via the online portal beginning in mid-March.

Where is income from a pension indicated?

Income from pensions, annuities and other types of income appear on a T4A tax form
