We have received conflicting information on how to report the total remittances on the T4 summary (Box 82).
Both PaymentEvolution and TaxCycle say that we should report the actual amount remitted and CRA will then add the amounts from the PD27s that have been submitted.
Prior to seeing that information, someone in our office called CRA. The person at CRA said we should add the amount from the PD27 to the actual amount remitted and put the combined total on the T4 summary (Box 82).
We haven’t seen anything in writing from CRA, including in what would be the most obvious place, the T4 guide. We all know that an answer over the phone from CRA is not worth the paper it is written on, so we would at least like to see it written somewhere.
While it might be 6 of one and half a dozen of the other, I prefer to use the method that is going to result in the least interaction with CRA.
Has anyone found anything concrete from CRA on what they want?
