Keeping you informed
Your T4A tax slip for 2019 has been mailed
It’s almost tax time! When filing your taxes for 2019, make sure you include your T4A.
The T4A is a tax slip used to report the taxable Life insurance premium that is paid as part of your retiree benefits through the Trust.
Note: If you’re in B.C., you’ll get a second T4A slip for Stelco’s reimbursement of the Medical Services Plan (MSP) premium. [Feb 5/20]
