---problem on t4

In December 2018 my maternity leave ended, but I didn't officially start back in the office until January 2019.  For December I claimed my performance bonus for 2018 (approx. $6000) and half my vacation pay (approx. $850). My paystub shows that EI and CPP were deducted.  Today I received my T4.  It lists only $131.40 in income with no deductions indicated.  Is there any way this is correct?


There's really no way for us to advise you if this is correct or not, but it does not sound right that you would receive almost $7,000 and your T4 only shows $131.40. Was the cheque you received for your bonus and vacation pay claimed in 2018 but actually "paid" in 2019?? If "yes", then this could very well be correct.

You should contact your HR or Payroll Dept and inquire into this, they might discover a mistake has been made and can issue you an "amended T4".

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
