Tuition Tax Receipt (T2202A) FAQs

Show All

What is a T2202A?

A T2202A is a Tuition and Enrolment 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.

Tax receipts are not mailed

T2202A's are available at the end of February only through the web. To access your receipt, you will need to log into your myJIBC account, see instructions above.

Information on Tax Receips for Tuition Fees

Tuition fees for eligible courses exceeding $100 within a calendar year are income tax deductible.

Some programs, e.g. Taxi, are not eligible for T2202A. However, if the training was taken 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.

How do I obtain a copy of my T2202A for a previous tax year?

T2202As from 2015 forward can be downloaded from your myJIBC account.  For previous years, please email: t2202a@jibc.ca

What if I don't have a myJIBC account or don't remember my username and password?

All JIBC students have a myJIBC account.
See myJIBC Help if you are having trouble logging in or contact studenthelp@jibc.ca

Why is the amount on my T2202A different from the amount I paid?

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 t2202a@jibc.ca.

How do I claim my Education and Textbook Tax Credits?

Effective January 1, 2017, the federal education and textbook tax credits were eliminated. This measure did not eliminate the tuition tax credit, and it does not affect the ability to carry forward unused education and textbook credit amounts from years prior to 2017. For information on this and other tax regulations, please refer to the CRA document Students and Income Tax.

How do I know if I am a qualifying student?

To be considered a full-time student, the following criteria must be met:

  • A qualifying education program is defined in the Income Tax Act as a program that lasts at least 3 consecutive weeks and requires a minimum of 10 hours of instruction or work in the program each week (not including study time). Instruction or work includes lectures, practical training and laboratory work.

To be considered a part-time student, the following criteria must be met:

  • A specified education program is defined in the Income Tax Act as a program that lasts at least 3 consecutive weeks and requires at least 12 hours of instruction each month.

The Canada Revenue Agency needs an explanation about my "Undeclared" program. What do I need to do?

Please contact t2202a@jibc.ca to request a confirmation of enrolment. There is a nominal fee for this service.
