T4RIF Summary

If you are filing electronically, do not send us the paper copy of the summary. For more information about filing methods, Filing Information Returns Electronically.

If you are filing on paper, use the T4RIF Summary to report the totals of the amounts reported on the related T4RIF slips. Send the original T4RIF Summary and the related slips to:

Canada Revenue Agency
Jonquière Tax Centre
T4RSP and T4RIF programonline
Post Office Box 1300 LCD Jonquière
Jonquière QC  G7S 0L5

To get a T4RIF Summary, go to Forms and publications or call 1-800-959-5525.

If the total number of T4RIF slips you file is more than 50 for the same calendar year, you have to file them online.


Budget 2021 announced that the threshold for mandatory electronic filing of income tax information returns for a calendar year would be lowered from 50 to 5 returns, in respect of a particular type of information return. For the latest information, refer to our webpage on the penalty for failure to file information returns at Late filing information return.

As the legislation for this measure was not finalized at the time the guides and forms were printed, the CRA will publish electronically, if necessary, the revised guides and forms once the applicable legislation has been finalized. Please check the CRA website. If you file your return prior to the revised forms becoming available, you may need to change your return.

Report amounts in Canadian dollars and cents, even if they were paid in another currency. To get the average exchange rates, see What are the average exchange rates?

Filling out the T4RIF Summary

Fill out a separate summary for each payer account number. The totals you report on your T4RIF Summary have to agree with the totals you report on your T4RIF slips. Errors or omissions can cause unnecessary processing delays.

For the year ending December 31, 20__

Make sure that the year you enter is the same as the year on the slips.
