Print/PDF Slips

Updated: 2020-07-22

To print the open slips return (see screen capture below):

  1. Click on Print/PDF sidebar or press Ctrl+P on your keyboard.
  2. At the top of the Print/PDF sidebar, choose the slip type you want to print: Original, Amended or Cancelled. In TaxCycle T4/T4A, make sure you also choose the type of slip to print: T4, T4A, T4PS, T4A-RCA, Québec RL-1 or RL-2 slips.
  3. Check the box(es) for the set(s) you want to print. TaxCycle determines which print sets to print based on which forms are used and the condition associated with the print set in Print/PDF options. If you change the selection, a blue asterisk appears to indicate you have overridden the default. Click on the asterisk again to revert to the default print set selection.
  4. If you want to use a different printer or file output (such as Adobe PDF) for a particular print set, click on the edit link of the print set to configure the printer and output format.
  5. At the bottom of the panel is the list of forms that will print in the order the forms will be printed, grouped by print set. TaxCycle decides which forms appear in the list based on what is used in the return and what is configured for each print set. You change the selection of slips if you only want to print certain slips.
  6. Click on any form or slip to see a preview of it.
  7. Click on the Show all forms in print set link at the top of the forms list to see original, amended or cancelled slips that aren't part of the initial selection. 
  8. When you're ready, click the Print Selected button at the bottom of the pane to begin printing.


Create separate PDF files for each slip recipient

To create PDF files for slip recipients, modify the Employee copy or Recipient copy print set (the name changes depending on the type of slip you are printing—this example uses T4 slips). You can either do this in Print/PDF options for the slip type, or directly from the Print sidebar:

  1. Click the edit link in the Print set to open the Print Configuration dialog box.
  2. Choose PDF as the Printer/Output.
  3. Set the PDF options as to generate as you would like. See the Printer and PDF output options help topic.
  4. If you don't want to include the instructions on the second page of the PDF file, clear the check box next to Instruction pages.
  5. To separate the slips out into individual files, check Create one file for each slip recipient.
  6. Check Publish to SlipSync to make the slip data available should you prepare the related T1 or T3 return for a slip recipient. See the SlipSync help topic.
  7. Click Save these settings for T4 Employee copy (or whichever the print set you are editing) to save these settings back to Print options.
