What is a T4 slip

T4 slip is a summary of your employment earnings and deductions for the year.

If you do not get your T4 slip by the end of February, ask your employer for a copy. If you cannot get a copy in time to complete your return, you may be able to view your tax information online using the My Account for Individuals service. Otherwise, use your pay stubs or statements to calculate your income and any deductions or credits you can claim.
