Public Service Announcement
If you receive social assistance, your 2016 T5007 slips will be mailed out starting the week of February 20, 2017.
These slips are used to report the amount of benefits received from last year’s social assistance. The T5007 slips are issued to the head of household and will be mailed to the last known address on your file.
If you received $500 or less in social assistance in 2016, you will not be issued a T5007 slip. You are still required to report your social assistance payments on your tax return, as per Canada Revenue Agency guidelines.
Completing your income tax is important and ensures that you receive benefits like the Canada Child Tax Benefit, GST, the Federal Guaranteed Income Supplement, Nunavut’s Senior Citizens Supplementary Benefit, etc.
If you have any questions about your T5007 tax slip, please contact your community income support worker.
