f you received COVID-19 emergency or recovery benefits from the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA), you will get a T4A slip for the amounts you received.

These benefit amounts are taxable. Any payments you received before December 31, 2020 need to be reported on your 2020 income tax and benefit return.

You will get a T4A slip if you received:

  • Canada Emergency Response Benefit (CERB) with the CRA
  • Canada Emergency Student Benefit (CESB)
  • Canada Recovery Benefit (CRB)
  • Canada Recovery Caregiving Benefit (CRCB)
  • Canada Recovery Sickness Benefit (CRSB)
  • Provincial or territorial COVID-19 financial assistance payments

You will receive one T4A slip which includes all your COVID-19 benefit payments from the CRA.

The CRA will send your T4A slip before March 10, 2021. You may also get a copy of your T4A slip from CRA My Account. After March 10, 2021, if you still do not have your T4A information, contact the CRA.

Provincial or territorial COVID-19 financial assistance payments will be on separate T4A slips.
