This past year has been unparalleled in the impact it has had on all members of our University of Guelph community. Each of us has faced unique circumstances and challenges personally and professionally. As GOAL 2.0 Performance Summary Quality Conversations are initiated, we have encouraged managers to approach them with compassion and flexibility to acknowledge the challenges and complexities associated with working through the pandemic.

In previous years, paper T4 and T4A slips for active employees have been distributed through an individual’s department or, for inactive employees to their home address on file. Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic and following guidelines from Public Health, many University of Guelph faculty and staff, continue to work- from-home.
Given this, all T4 and T4A slips for the 2020 tax year, will be sent to an individual’s current address on file no later than February 28, 2021.
During the 2020 calendar year, following guidelines from public health, many University of Guelph faculty and staff have moved to working-from-home because of the COVID-19 pandemic. This has raised many questions regarding an employee’s ability to deduct home-based work expenses when filing their 2020 income tax returns and whether the University will be issuing T2200S forms.
