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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
