In the coming weeks, you will receive T4 or T4A slips (or R1 slips if you reside in Quebec), in respect of the various sources of Nortel income that you received in 2012. Depending on the types of payments you received in 2012, you may receive more than one slip related to Nortel.
Individuals who received payments in 2012 from Nortel’s registered pension plans will receive a tax slip issued by Northern Trust and CIBC Mellon as there was a change in custodian in 2012. The tax slips from Northern Trust reflect payments made in January 2012 and February 2012 and were mailed last week, so please watch your mail. The tax slips from CIBC Mellon reflect payments made from March 2012 to December 2012 and will be mailed in the next few weeks.
You may also receive separate T4A, T4 or R1 slips for other payments you may have received by or through Nortel in 2012, including certain distributions from the Nortel Health and Welfare Trust. These tax slips will be mailed out in the next few weeks.
