COVID-19 Income and Deductions
COVID-19 Income, Support and Benefits Received

Due to the pandemic, many individuals received government support in a variety of forms. Please indicate on the enclosed checklist all income, support or benefits that you have received under Covid-19 relief programs. Please be aware that official tax slips may have been issued for some, but not all programs. For support that you received where no slip is available, provide us with the details of the amount and type of payment that you received.
Working from Home

If you were working from home during a portion of 2020 due to Covid-19, a deduction may be available. Please complete the Working from Home section of the checklist if you wish to claim a deduction on your 2020 personal tax return.

Missing Slips

It is important to note that you are responsible to report all of your tax slips (T4, T4A, T3, T5 etc.) when filing your personal income tax return. Through the Canada Revenue Agency slip matching program, an unreported slip may result in significant interest and penalties. If you have not received all of your 2020 tax slips, please provide details of any missing information. Also, if you receive any additional slips or amended slips after your T1 is filed, please submit the slips to our office so that we can amend your return before CRA reassesses for the missed or amended slip.
Online Activity

Please provide details of income for which no T-slips have been received. You should be aware that any income, including income earned from online activity (Kijiji, VRBO, Airbnb, Bitcoin or other cryptocurrency transactions) may be required to be reported to CRA on your personal tax return. Please be aware CRA can obtain details of sales and transaction records from online businesses.
