Delete Tax Slips

This video is from a previous year, but rest assured the process remains the same.

Have incorrect tax slips that haven’t been sent to your employees or included in a file transmitted to the CRA or RQ?

Although this video is from a past year, rest assured that the process remains the same. Alternatively, you can read the article below.
