What is the T4E Tax form? 

It stands for Statement of Employment Insurance and Other Benefits (T4E). A T4E is a tax information slip that Service Canada issues to you and the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) that details the gross Employment Insurance benefits that were paid to you for the prior tax year, the income tax that was withheld from those benefits, and any money that was paid to cover an overpayment. When preparing and submitting your Canadian income taxes, use T4Es.

The official Canadian government website describes T4E in simpler words for citizens to understand. You will be issued a T4E slip under these 3 conditions: 

  1. Employment Insurance (EI) benefits
  2. Canada Emergency Response Benefit (CERB) payments from Service Canada
  3. reimbursed a prior year’s overpayment

Moreover, the T4E tax form slip indicates the total amount of benefits received, which also includes the Canada Emergency Response Benefits. It also shows the deduction from the income tax and the compensation paid for the overpayment.

You may find more information on how to report these figures on line 11905 if you received maternity, parental, or provincial parental insurance plan benefits through employment insurance.

What are Canada Emergency Response Benefits (CERB)

Canadians who were directly impacted by COVID-19 received financial assistance under the Canada Emergency Response Benefit (CERB).

If you had qualified, you might have gotten $2,000 over the course of four weeks or $500 every week.

The taxation of the Canada Emergency Response Benefits (CERB)

Amounts received from Canada Emergency Response Benefits (CERB) are taxable. When you submit your income tax return, you must include the Canada Emergency Response Benefits (CERB) funds as income. Your required tax payment will vary depending on your income level.
