Definition of source deductions

Source deductions are sums of money that are withheld from your paycheque to pay for certain services or taxes.

This money may be used to pay union dues, contributions to a pension fund and/or contributions to group insurance. Such deductions are also used to partially or fully spread out how much you owe each year in taxes.

Your employer is required to take this money off your paycheque and give it to the union, insurer and/or government.
