T4RIF Tax Slips

Canadian T4RIF Tax Slips for Registered Retirement Income Fund (RRIF) Income


Updated: 01/08/2014

What are T4RIF Tax Slips?

A Canadian T4RIF tax slip, or Statement of Income From a Registered Retirement Income Fund, is prepared and issued by a financial institution to tell you and the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) how much money you received out of your RRIF for a given tax year and how much tax was deducted.

Deadline for T4RIF Tax Slips

T4RIF tax slips must be issued by the last day of February the year after the calendar year to which the T4RIF tax slips apply.

Filing T4RIF Tax Slips With Your Income Tax Return

When you file a paper income tax return, include copies of each of the T4RIF tax slips you receive. If you file your income tax return using NETFILE or EFILE, keep copies of your T4RIF tax slips with your records for six years in case the CRA asks to see them.

Missing T4RIF Tax Slips

If you haven't received a T4RIF slip, file your income tax return by the deadline anyway to avoid penalties for filing your income taxes late. Calculate the income and any related deductions and credits you can claim as closely as you can using any information you have. Include a note with the financial institution's name and address, the amount of RRIF income and related deductions, and what you have done to get a copy of the missing T4RIF slip. Include copies of any statements you used in calculating the income and deductions for the missing T4RIF tax slip.

  • T4 - Statement of Remuneration Paid
