If you have received a PIER report due to unadjusted EI and CPP amounts from T4s, the CRA requests the following course of action:
- Respond to the PIER group by sending a letter to the tax office listed on your notice by the deadline provided in the notice or by April 15th (whichever is earlier). Indicate that the file(s) in question is/are part of the Intuit calculation problem and request that the file(s) causing the error(s) be deleted. (If you wish to fax your letter, make sure you contact your tax centre first, to confirm that they will accept the letter by fax.)
Alternatively, you may choose to bundle copies of all received PIER notices in a single package and send them together with one letter.
- Once the PIER group has deleted the erroneous file(s), they will contact you to let you know that you can safely re-file the return. Do not re-file the return before the CRA has contacted you with these instructions. Doing so will further delay the processing of the return.
- Re-submit the T4 slip(s) using T4 Internet filing or by magnetic media.
