Income reported both in Box 14 and Box 83

Recommended Posts



On my T4 slip the same amount of income is reported in box 14(10000) and box 83(10000). I only made 10000 from that place in that year. When I filed my taxes, the final amount came to 20000. Am I doing something wrong or is the problem coming from the employer.

To enter the amount displayed in Box 83 of your T4 slip, you must follow these steps:


1- In the "QuikClik Navigator", located on the left-hand side of the screen, click on "T4 and employment income".

2- On the right-hand side of the screen, select among the first two options ("T4 and Rl-1 (Relevé 1) income earned in Quebec" or "T4 income earned outside Quebec") the one that applies to your situation. Enter the information shown on your T4 in the appropriate boxes.

3- Go to the bottom of the "T4 slip income" page, and in the last section "T4 footnotes - miscellaneous items recorded on T4 slips", select "Memo Box 83 Barbers or hairdressers" from the drop-down menu and enter the amount in the field.


Once you have followed the steps above, you must also enter box 83 of the T4 as business income. In order to do so, please follow these steps:


1- Return to the "QuikClik Navigator" and click on "Interview setup". On the right-hand side page, select "Self-employed business income" and click "Next" at the bottom of this page.

2- Click on the line "Self-employment income" that appears in the "QuikClik Navigator" and select one of the T2125 forms on the right side of the screen that best represents your business. As a rule, you should choose "T2125 - Business income".

3- On the "Business identification" page, enter your full name at the line "Business name" and enter the other mandatory information in the sections marked with a red asterisk.

4- For the line "6-digit code from the North American industry classification system", enter the code that best describes your industry. If you do not know the code, click on the help button (?) located on the right side of the box to access a list of the codes.

5- In "Income, expenses", enter $0 on the line "Gross sales, commissions or fees" and enter the amount in Box 83 on the line for "Income entered in a T4 page (one of Boxes 78, 81, 82 or 83)". If you have any expenses related to this income, fill out the boxes according to each description.


The program will generate federal form T2125 and, if applicable, Quebec Schedule M as well as form TP-80.
