Important Information Regarding your 2019 Amended T4s
Message to employees –
We are providing you with an update following the memo you received from Human Resources and Organizational Effectiveness (HROE) within your 2019 T4 envelope. The memo indicated that we anticipated a greater number of amended T4s would be issued this year as a result of implementation of our new Human Resources Management System. We originally indicated the majority of amended T4s would be issued by the end of March. We suggested delaying the filing of your personal tax return until Monday, April 6 to avoid having to refile your taxes, should you receive an amended T4.
Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) has deferred the deadline for filing personal income tax returns to June 1, 2020. In keeping with this new deadline, and due to the impact of COVID-19 on HROE remote working arrangements and the remote working arrangements for the annual third party CAAT Pension reconciliation process, the timeline for the amended 2019 T4(s) to be issued is being adjusted to mid April.
We are now targeting distribution of amended T4s by April 17. The amended T4s will be mailed to the home address we have on file in our Human Resources Management System (HRMS).
Your amended T4 will be uploaded to the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) website by April 17. If you have a personal CRA account, you will be able to securely view your tax form details when you login to your personal CRA account.
It’s a challenging time for everyone right now, and we appreciate your understanding and patience
