Why Keep Old Pay Stubs?
Is there any reason for me to keep these things around?

Strange, my pay stubs from this year don't show any deductions for group health but I do have coverage. Is this normal?brunes wrote: ↑Sep 29th, 2007 9:13 amIf you don't have a group health plan, you really only need to keep your paystubs for the past year so that when you get your T4 you can verify your income and CPP numbers add up correctly.
If you do have a group health plan, those deductions from your cheque are not on your T4, so if you claimed that medical expense (which you should), then you should keep those paystyubs for the 7 years the CRA could go back on you in case of an audit.
EDIT: above also applies if you do a pre-authorized charity donation from your cheque, which some big companies allow as well.

"Medical expenses for the taxpayer, the taxpayer's spouse or common-law partner, and dependent children under 18 are claimed on line 330 of the federal tax return. Only expenses in excess of the lesser of $1,925 (federal, for 2007) or 3% of net income can be claimed. "

This sounds weird. Such deductions from your payroll should be itemized.

I see the following things on my ADP stub:

My stubs all show Year-To-Date figures for all of these numbers, and the total 'Less Taxable Benefits' for 2007 is $0.00. I have looked at all from the last 2 months and there's no indications of deductions for health insurance.

Every pay stub since the beginning of 2007 shows 0.00 for 'less taxable benefits.' Nothing specifically saying health insurance. And I did not have the group coverage until this year.
