Are WSCC benefits taxable?

Benefits are not taxable in Canada, and employers should not report them on a worker’s annual T4 statement of earnings. Benefits are included in the total income for some calculations. We issue T5007 information slips that workers include in their tax returns. Any amount that the WSCC reimburses you for worker benefits,must be deducted from their T4 amounts.
