To help you organize your paperwork and know more about timelines, we’ve created a table to list the different types of tax receipts and slips we prepare, and when they’re available online, and sent out in the mail.

In addition, to answer some of your questions, the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) has put together this listing of tax slips that includes:
 

  • descriptions of income each tax slip represents
  • information about why you need to include them when preparing your annual tax return
