Tax Slips: 2014 Update


Payroll & Benefit Services has several tax related updates such as tax slip availability, information about payments that are included in the 2014 T4, and a reminder about the Personal Spending Account.

T2200 - Should You Sign?

Employees, particularly academic staff, may ask you to sign a completed T2200 income tax form which allows them to declare expenses that relate to the terms and conditions of employment that are not reimbursed by an employer (e.g., home office, cell phone, travel expenses).

Changes to Support Staff Disclosure Reporting Process

Support Staff with financial duties (e.g. purchasing), responsibility for hiring, and/or research responsibilities are required annually to complete a Conflict of Interest and Conflict of Commitment Disclosure Report. For the past few years this process was managed using an online application called E-COI. Based on feedback from users and in-depth review of the online application and its functionality, the application has been discontinued.

Payroll Deadlines Updated

The 2015 Pay Period Schedules have been added to the Pay Administration webpage​. Payroll & Benefit Services has also shared a one-page Semi-Monthly Pay Dates and Monthly Pay Dates on the Pay Information webpage as a printer friendly reference of upcoming pay dates for all staff.

Please contact Michele Boczkowski, Manager​,​ Payroll & Benefits if you have any questions about these updates.
