If you have not received, or have lost or misplace a slip for the current year, you can ask your employer or the issuer of the slip for a copy.
If you know that you will not be able to receive a tax slip on time to file your tax return, or you do not receive them, you may be able to view your tax information online through the MyAccount for Individuals. Otherwise, you can attach a note to your paper return stating the payer’s name and address, the type of income involved and what you are doing to get the slip.
You can use your pay stubs or statements to estimate the income you have to report and any related deductions and credits you can claim. Make sure to attach a copy of the pay stubs to your paper return and keep the original documents. If you are filing electronically, keep all of your documents in case the CRA asks for them later.
You can also get copies of your OAS, EI and CPP tax slips electronically through the Service Canada website.
