The T5007 statement of benefits, or “T5” for short, is a tax slip that the Ministry of Community and Social Services issues to people who have received social assistance. You will receive a T5 in the mail by the end of February if you received social assistance during the previous year.
If you have not received or have lost your Ontario Works T5 slip, call Toronto Employment and Social Services for a replacement at 416-338-8888 (select option 3, then select the option to speak with staff about obtaining a T5) between 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. You will need to have your Social Insurance Number available when you call.
Please note that, for T5 replacements, Toronto Employment and Social Services:
Should you wish to dispute your T5 amount, you can discuss the amount with your caseworker if you are still receiving funds from Ontario Works. If you are no longer receiving funds from Ontario Works, you can call 416-338-8888 (select option 3, then select the option to speak with staff about obtaining a T5).
If you need help with your tax return, there are No Cost Online Income Tax Filing Services and a list of free tax clinics in Toronto available through the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA).
