Track and report your tips and gratuities

tip amount

Important information

The CRA is reaching out this income tax season to remind Canadians of their tax obligations when it comes to tips and gratuities, and encouraging tip earners to be part of the solution so we all get it right from the start.

Tips and gratuities are taxable income. Taxpayers, employers and the CRA all have a shared interest in voluntary compliance. 

If any of your tips and gratuities are controlled by your employer, your tip income amount should already be included on your T4 slip. If you’re not sure, ask your employer.

Get more information about your employer’s responsibility if your tips and gratuities are controlled.

For tips earned within the province of Québec, visit the Revenu Québec website.
