The WCB is informing you of financial activity done on your behalf. In this case, the WCB is required by the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) to send you a T5007 tax form at the end of the year for the amount of money that is taxable and was paid to your employer on your behalf. From the CRA’s point of view, you benefit from that taxable income even when it was paid to your employer.
The overpayment recovery affects the payment you are receiving and your overpayment balance with the WCB. It affects the payment by reducing the amount that you are paid. It affects your overpayment balance by reducing the outstanding amount that you owe the WCB for overpayments.
