I do believe u will get an income tax slip from Revenue Canada!


Canadians Visiting the USA while undergoing the visa process, my free advice:

1) Always tell the TRUTH. never lie to the POE officer

2) Be confident in ur replies

3) keep ur response short and to the point, don't tell ur life story!!

4) look the POE officer in the eye when speaking to them. They are looking for people lieing and have been trained to find them!

5) Pack light! No job resumes with you

6) Bring ties to Canada (letter from employer when ur expected back at work, lease, etc etc)

7) Always be polite, being rude isn't going to get ya anywhere, and could make things worse!!

8) Have a plan in case u do get denied (be polite) It wont harm ur visa application if ur denied,that is if ur polite and didn't lie! Refer to #1

It'll go in as income earned in 2007. They go by the weeks it was paid for not when received

Yes

Go to the Service Canada website and log in and there is a link to printing the T4E slips online. I believe it should be available Jan 28 or later.

Hmm, well I could be wrong, but my understanding of Canadian taxation is that the money is claimed in the year it is paid, not the year it was earned or in this case 'nominated' for.

Is EI completely different than all other income? If so, I wasn't aware of it.

For instance say your employer holds back 2 weeks pay, as a matter of course (so you are always 2 weeks behind). Therefore when you get paid on January 15th, he is really paying you for work-time from December 15th-31st.

For tax purposes that becomes 2008 income as it lands in your bank account (or he hands you the cheque) in 2008.

I have no clue, but they will find out when/if she gets a t4E, or a phone call into EI

I hear you Scott, you are saying paid in 07 earned in 07 (if she did get any payment in 07), I thought that Udella&Wiz was actually questioning the deemed for 07 paid in 08 EI benefits.

Anyway - the answer is here: link

I began my EI claim in December 2007, but I did not receive a T4E. Why?

EI benefits are taxable in the taxation year in which they are paid. For example, if your EI claim began on December 23, 2007, but your payment was issued on or after January 1st, 2008, it is considered income for 2008.

Her EI payments she's referring to were issued in Dec of 2007. She didn't get em in her bank till 2008 so therefore the income is classed as money earned in 2007 as it was recoreded as beiing paid by EI in Dec. Any and all payments issued now after Dec 31 will be classed as earnings for 2008. She'll receive another T4 E next yr for the money they paid out on that claim in 2008.

I have had EI claims in split yrs before and that's how it always went unless they changed it

No not really. The money was deposited in to her account in 2008, therefore it will counted as 2008 income.

That is really the basis of the Canadian taxation system, in terms of non business income - otherwise employers would be issuing T4's calculating how much everyone 'really' earned until midnight December 31st, not based on what they actually physically paid to you up until then.
