A T2202A is a Tuition, Education and Textbook Amounts Certificate. This form displays the eligible tuition and other fees paid during a tax year and the number of months a student was enrolled in part-time and/or full-time studies.
T2202A's are not mailed. They are available only through your myJIBC account.
T2202As are not issued in the following situations:
- The student has paid less than $100 in tuition and fees
- Some programs, eg Taxi, are not eligible for T2202A. However, if the training was undertaken for work purposes you may be eligible to use your payment receipt for income tax purposes. Please check with the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) for details.
- You may not be eligible if you were sponsored for your training.
T2202As will be provided online through your myJIBC account by the end of February.
The information required for tax filing will be available at the end of February through your myJIBC account – see above for step by step instructions.
There are a few possible explanations:
- One or more of the courses you took are not eligible. To receive a tax receipt, the course must be equal to a certain number of credits or hours.
- Not all tuition and related fees are tax deductible. For a list of eligible fees, please refer to the Canada Revenue Agency.
- Tuition fees for courses spanning one calendar year to the next are pro-rated to each applicable year.
If the points above do not apply to your situation and your tuition tax form still doesn't reflect the amount of tuition and fees you paid, email email@example.com.
For information on this and other tax regulations, please refer to the CRA document Students and Income Tax.
