How do I enter other employment income?

If you have other employment income reported on slips or forms, enter it in the INCOME > T-Slips step of TurboTax.

If you have other employment income not reported on slips or forms, or if your slip or form is not listed in the T-Slips step of TurboTax, enter it in the INCOME > Employment Status step of TurboTax.

Some common types of other employment income are:

  • Foreign employment income (Foreign income slip)
  • Royalties (T5 slip)
  • Income from an employee-profit sharing plan (T4PS slip)
  • Research grants, wage-loss replacement income, medical premium benefits, veteran’s benefits, wage-earner protection program (T4A slip)
  • Tips, gratuities, and occasional earnings (May not be reported on a slip, or may be reported on a T4 slip – box 14)
  • Clergy’s housing allowance or amount for eligible utilities (T4 slip – box 14)

Tip: Other employment income is not the same as other income:

Other employment income is income you earned in relation to employment (line 104 of your T1 General). Other income is taxable income that is not related to employment. This can include scholarships, bursaries, apprenticeship incentives, alimony, retirement allowances, and others (line 130 of your T1 General).
