To assist with your tax filing this year, we provide below a list of the documents you’ve received from us based on the type of account(s) you hold. We’ve also included a brief explanation of their purpose.
Please note: All documents are now provided electronically via our client portal, rather than by mail. This allows us to get them to you faster as well as more efficiently and securely.
Non-registered investment accounts
If you hold a non-registered account, which simply means an investment account other than an RRSP, RRIF or TFSA, we send you a T3 slip for each Steadyhand fund you hold. T3 slips show the realized capital gains, dividend income (and corresponding dividend tax credit, if applicable), and other forms of investment income that you’re responsible for claiming on your return. These slips were uploaded to our client portal in mid-February.
Note that T3 slips do not include any capital gains (or losses) that you may have incurred from selling or switching units of Steadyhand funds in your non-registered account. If you made such a transaction(s), we send you a T5008 for each applicable Steadyhand fund. These forms were uploaded in mid-February.
If you made a contribution(s) to your RRSP between March 3, 2020, and December 31, 2020, we provide you with an RRSP Contribution Receipt for the total amount of contributions you made over this period. These receipts were uploaded in late-January.
If you made a contribution(s) between January 1, 2021, and March 1, 2021, we send you a separate receipt for any contributions made in the first 60 days of the year (this amount can be applied to your 2020 tax return, or to a future year if you choose). These ‘first 60 days’ receipts were uploaded in mid-March.
If you made a redemption from your RRSP in 2020, we send you a T4RSP slip. This slip shows the amount of any redemption(s) you made as well as any withholding tax that we remitted to Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) on your behalf. These slips were uploaded in late-January.
If you hold a RRIF, we send you a T4RIF slip. This slip shows the amount of your redemptions (including your minimum payment and any additional redemptions you may have made) as well as any withholding tax that we remitted to Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) on your behalf. These slips were uploaded in late-January.
If you hold a TFSA, you do not receive any tax slips from us. These accounts are exempt from tax, and any contributions/withdrawals do not generate any tax-related documents. You should be sure, however, to adhere to the maximum contribution limits for these accounts and the rules relating to re-contributions if you do make a withdrawal.
All of your tax-related documents related to your investments at Steadyhand are now available in our client portal. If you can’t find a slip/receipt you think you should have, or if you have any questions about a specific document, please contact us at 1-888-888-3147.
