I’ve Got My T4. Now What?

By now, you should have received your T4 as well as most of the other slips and receipts that you need for Canadian tax season. Your T4 slip will generally note your taxable income, benefits, allowances, deductions, and pension plan contributions. Remember, if you changed jobs or had multiple employers last year, you’ll need to make sure that you have T4 slips from all of them.

You may also have some of these additional tax documents:

T4, Statement of Remuneration Paid

T4A, Statement of Pension, Retirement, Annuity, and Other Income
T4A(OAS), Statement of Old Age Security
T4A(P), Statement of Canada Pension Plan Benefits
T4E, Statement of Employment Insurance and Other Benefits
T4RIF, Statement of income from a Registered Retirement Income Fund
T4RSP, Statement of RRSP Income
T5, Statement of Investment Income
T5007, Statement of Benefits
T5008, Statement of Securities Transactions
T3, Statement of Trust Income Allocations and Designations
RRSP contribution receipt

More information on tax slips and documents is available on the CRA website.

Once you have your T4 in hand, you’re ready to get started. The question is: how are you going to file your taxes this year?
You may be planning to follow the same tax filing system that you used last year. But is that really the best option? Are you really using the best income tax planning software? Did you know that most tax filing systems leave large gaps for human error? People miss many potential tax credits because they are using inadequate filing methods. What tax credits might you be missing?

That’s why we created the TAXplan app. It’s the only tax app in Canada that pushes your information directly to a professional tax planner – a TAXpro – for filing.

When you file your taxes through the TAXplan app, a TAXpro will help to reduce income taxes overall and ensure that you never miss a potential tax credit.

The app offers human expertise and communication. You can access TAXplan’s certified TAXpros to ask questions anytime and from anywhere using the messaging system.

You won’t find a more convenient, cost effective, stress-free way to have your tax return processed, maximized, and filed by a professional.
The app has been designed to meet the needs of individuals, families, students, and the self-employed.

With your T4 in hand, you can get started right away. There’s a customized checklist and secure file sharing vault that make it easy and convenient for you to interact with your TAXpro.
