Important information regarding your tax slips

This page contains information about tax slips and securities tax reporting that may be helpful to you and your tax professional. Edward Jones expects to mail all tax slips to clients no later than March 31. Tax reporting for trust units and partnerships is more complex, and as a result, issuers have more time to provide us with final tax reporting information. Please consider this when scheduling your appointment with your tax advisor.

Explanation of tax slips and forms you may receive from Edward Jones

Non-registered accounts
Investment Income Summary

All investors who had dividend or interest entries posted to their accounts throughout the tax year will receive an Investment Income Summary.

 

  • Account types are consolidated on one summary (e.g., cash, margin, etc.).
  • A separate summary will be prepared for each currency.
  • The entries are sorted in chronological order.
  • Credits will be shown as “Paid to You.” Debits will be shown as “Paid by You.”
  • Each entry will be accompanied by an income code [e.g., (0) interest, (1) dividends, (3) foreign income, etc.].
  • Totals for each income type will appear at the end of the summary.
  • These totals are used to generate the entries that appear on the various tax slips.

 

Income from trust units or Canadian Treasury bills/U.S. Treasury bills is not reported on this document. Trust unit income is reported on the T3 Summary of Income, and Treasury bill income is reported on a Trading Summary that summarizes the T5008 information reported to the Canada Revenue Agency.

 

Note: Tax laws prohibit the netting of debits and credits. Investors may be able to use copies of their Investment Income Summary to claim the “Paid by You” amounts when filing their income tax returns. Borrowing charges are included in the “Paid by You” amounts.

Adjusted Cost Base information presented on the T5008 will also be reported to the CRA. Investors will also receive a Trading Summary that includes the gain/loss details, and purchase information. The deadline for mailing the T5008 Summary and Releve 18 Slips is February 28.
Summary of Trust Income

All investors who are deemed to have received trust unit income and capital gains during the trust’s fiscal year will receive a Summary of Trust Income. Account types are consolidated on one summary (e.g., cash, margin, etc.).

 

A separate summary will be prepared for each currency. The entries are sorted by security and then in chronological order. Totals for each income type will appear at the end of the summary.

 

These totals are used to generate the entries that appear on the T3 and Relevé 16 Slips.

In addition, a Form 1099-B will be produced for the proceeds from dispositions or sale of securities. A copy of these forms will be sent to the Internal Revenue Service. In compliance with IRS requirements, every person must provide his or her Social Security number (SSN) to the requester. If your Form 1099 does not have your SSN, you should provide your Edward Jones advisor with a completed Form W-9. We will mail your Consolidated form 1099 by February 15.
Mutual FundsThe fund companies should mail tax slips directly to the beneficial owners by no later than March 31. Income generated by investments in various mutual funds is reported on a Canada Revenue Agency T3 Slip (and a Revenu Québec Relevé 16 Slip for Québec residents) or a Canada Revenue Agency T5 Slip (and a Revenu Québec Relevé 3 Slip for Québec residents). Mutual fund securities are registered at the fund companies in our name in trust for the beneficial owner.
  

Note: Distributions from trust units and limited partnership units can take various forms, including taxable dividends, interest, capital gains and foreign income, or a combination thereof. The frequency and type of distributions vary by trust unit and limited partnership unit. In the majority of cases, when distributions are announced, the trust or limited partnership does not know what portion should be applied to the various types. This information on the distribution split is usually not made available until March. Some are declared only a few days before the deadline. In certain situations, distributions declared and paid in the new year must be reported as income received in the previous year.

We will mail the Summary of Trust Unit Income and the corresponding T3 and Relevé 16 Slips as well as the T5013 and Relevé 15 Slips by the corresponding deadlines. Please keep this in mind when scheduling your appointment with your tax professional.
