I can’t get a T4 slip from one of my employers, what can I do?

After exhausting all options, take your last paystub of the year and enter in the amounts into your tax return such as Gross Wages, CPP, EI, Union Dues (if applicable), Charitable donations (if applicable). The CRA will then adjust your return to the copy of the T4 that they will have on file. It is always better to report your income rather than omitting it as the CRA will charge you a 10% penalty on the balance owing for not entering in a slip the first time. If you do this again within next 3 years, they will charge you a 20% penalty on your taxes owing.
