Financial Skills: Income Taxes

January 19, 2021 at 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM

Would you like to better understand tax slips and learn how to file your income taxes? Then this webinar is for you. We will first start with a brief overview of the Canadian tax system covering topics such as: types of different taxes, tax brackets, and how different income gets taxed. We will review key tax slips (see list below) and show you how to make sense of them through live examples. Finally, we will cover various tax credits and deductions available to you.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Learn about the different Canadian tax brackets, what counts as taxable income, and how different types of income get taxed.
  • Develop a basic understanding of the information contained on key tax slips (T4, T4A, T5, T2202, RL-1, RL-3, RL-8, RL-19, RL-24, and RL-31).
  • Learn about common tax deductions and credits available to you.

All graduate students and postdocs are welcome. If you are working as a TA, this session counts toward voluntary paid training hours, provided that you are working as a TA in the term when the training takes place.
