T2202A: Tuition, Education, & Textbook Amounts Certificate
What is a T2202A Form?
T2202A (Tuition, Education, and Textbook Amounts Certificate) is an official statement for income tax purposes. It is issued to all students who paid tuition and fees for qualifying courses that are eligible for claim on the income tax return. The form shows the amount of tuition that can be deducted for income tax purposes as well as the number of months eligible for the education and textbook deduction. T2202A are available by the 3rd week in February for the tuition and eligible fees paid in the preceding calendar year.
Tax receipts are issued for the calendar year for the dollar value of tuition for the courses taken between January and December. For instance, if you made a tuition payment instalment in December for next years tuition, the amount would be included in the follow year's T2202A form as it relates to courses that will be taken in that calendar year.
