The T5007 statement is a statement issued by WorkSafeBC in late February each year that reports total compensation benefits paid to a worker, or on a worker’s behalf, during a calendar year. These benefits include wage-loss replacement, disability payments, and survivor benefits.
Even though compensation benefits are not taxable, they might affect certain tax credit claims and payments. Therefore, these benefits must be included as part of net income in an income tax return. For more information please see What You Need to Know About the T5007 Income Tax Form (PDF 89kb).
If you did not receive a copy of your T5007, or if you did but misplaced it, you can log in to your online services account and go to the View Claim application to view and re-print any slip that was sent to you.

Only payments that were made in the applicable tax year, regardless of the period of time the payment covers, will show up on your T5007 slip. For example, if you were paid for the period December 20, 2010 to January 2, 2011, and this payment was made on January 3, 2011, this amount is not included on your 2010 tax slip. Instead, this payment is accounted for on your 2011 tax slip.
Please keep in mind that some payments, such as clothing allowances, personal care allowances, interest payments, medical expenses, and funeral payments are considered expenses and will be excluded from your T5007.
The amounts the dependent children are entitled to will be included in the calculation of the payee’s T5007. If the guardian(s) is the payee for the dependent children’s entitlements, then the entitled amounts will be listed on the guardian’s (guardians’) T5007.
