Does my son need a T4 to file this earning on his income tax? and will he be able to have RRSP contribution room for this income?Thanks

Hi,

My son is 17. He earned some amount of money occasionally to do some administrative work, cleaning etc. for a person who rents out a condo. This person said he will deduct the money paid to my son as rental expense. My son receives the money by cash/cheque. Does my son need  a T4 to file this earning on his income tax? and will he be able to have RRSP contribution room for this income?

Thanks

He doesn't need to get a T4 slip. He will file his income as occasional earnings not on a T-Slip. TurboTax can handle that. The income will create RRSP deduction room.
