T4A slips for COVID-19 amounts

The CRA will include all the COVID-19 benefit amounts you paid back or received from the CRA on one T4A slip. Each benefit will have its own box number on your T4A slip.

If you have not received your T4A slip by the end of February 2022, you can get a copy from CRA My Account. If this is not possible, then call the CRA.

Quebec residents will get both a T4A slip and a RL-1 slip.

Your province or territory will send separate T4A slips for COVID-19 financial assistance payments.

Adjusted T4A amounts

If the CRA adjusts your COVID-19 amounts, you may receive one of the following slips:

Amended T4A

If the CRA adjusts your COVID-19 benefit amounts, you will receive an amended T4A slip for your records:

  • If you still have to file your 2021 tax return – Use the amended T4A slip to report your COVID-19 benefit amounts on your tax return
  • If you already filed your 2021 tax return with your original T4A slip – You must wait until your return is assessed before you make a request to change your return
Cancelled T4A

If the CRA verifies that you did not receive any COVID-19 benefits, you will receive a cancelled T4A slip for your records.

  • If you already filed your 2021 tax return – You must wait until your return is assessed before you make a request to change your return

Other tax slips you may receive

You may get other tax slips in addition to the T4A slip:

T4E slip

If you received Employment Insurance (EI) benefits or repaid a CERB amount from Service Canada, you will get a T4E slip. For details: T4E: Service Canada COVID-19 related amounts.
