T4 and T4A slips for the 2019 tax year will be available online via Employee Self-Service (ESS) for all active University of Toronto employees on Tuesday, February 25, 2020.

Paper Tax Slips for Active Employees

Active employees who have requested to receive T4 paper delivery on ESS prior to January 31, 2020 will receive 2019 tax slips in the mail.

If applicable, paper copies of T4A slips will be mailed to all employees.

Any requests submitted after January 31, 2020 will affect T4 distribution starting in 2021.
