If you received advanced payments of the working income tax benefit (WITB), they’ll be reported on your RC210 slip. The WITB is a refundable tax credit for low-income Canadians who had income from employment or a business.
You can choose to receive up to half of the WITB in advance. Whatever benefit amount isn’t given to you as an advance payment will be shown in Box 10 of your RC210, and you’ll be credited this amount when the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) assesses your return.
Note: You need apply for the advance payments each year using this application on the CRA website.
