Unique Data Fields & Buttons


Other Income

Record other income in the boxes provided at the bottom of the window. The type code of the income should be indicated in the Box field with the corresponding Amounts directly beside. Press F2 or double click the box field to display a list of available codes. See your Tax Guide for a list and description of appropriate type codes.


S.I.N. Validation (Most forms)

eForms will check the validity of the S.I.N. entered and will display the contents of the S.I.N. box to red if the S.I.N. is invalid. You can, however, ignore the warning and continue to enter other information. The formula used to test the value of the S.I.N. is found in the CRA Publication: Formulae for Federal and Provincial Deductions for Computer Users.


When the edit list or detailed adjustment report is printed or displayed, there will be an asterisk beside any invalid S.I.N. values.


Status of Slip (Most Forms)

Select "O" ("R" on RQ information slips) for original, "A" for amended or "C" ("D" on RQ information slips) for cancelled. This will cause the slip to be labeled appropriately as required by CRA. It will also cause the slip to be included or excluded appropriately whenever the “Amended only” or “Originals only” options are chosen.


Optional Text to Print at Top of Slip

Information entered here, to a maximum of 15 characters, will be printed at the top of the slip.


Go To Summary Button

Click on this button to display the T4 Summary for the current employer. The data entry screen for the current slip will remain available via a tab beneath the toolbar.
