Tax slips: Get a copy of your slips

Get your T4, T5, T3, T2202, RC62, RC210 or RRSP slips 

Slips are prepared by your employer, payer, administrator or financial institution. You should receive most of your slips (including your T4, T4A, and T5 slips) and receipts by the end of February. However, T3, and T5013 slips do not have to be sent before the end of March.

To get your Old age security (OAS), employment insurance (EI) or Canada Pension Plan (CPP) slips, sign in to Service Canada.

If your tax slip is late or lost

Ask your employer or the issuer of the slip for a copy.

Option 2:
Estimate your income without tax slips

If you can't get a slip in time to file your taxes, you can estimate your income. Add up your pay stubs or financial statements to estimate the amount of income to report and any related deductions and credits you can claim.

Include a note with your return stating the name and address of the issuer of the slip, the type of income, and what you are doing to get the slip.

  • If you file electronically: Keep all of your documents in case the CRA asks to see them later.
  • If you file a paper return: Attach a copy of the pay stubs or statements and your note to your paper return. Keep your original documents.
