For complete details please visit the Canada Revenue Agency's website.

T4A (Statement of Pension, Retirement, Annuity, and Other Income)

The Canada Revenue Agency requires York to report bursaries, scholarships, awards, prizes and senior and exchange waiver amounts provided to students. These amounts are shown as income with a box code of 105. This amount reflects amounts you have received from York during the calendar year, that is, from January 1-December 31.

Note for students whose fees are covered under a tuition waiver:

Fee waivers are considered scholarships given to the student. Therefore, students receive T4As with the waived amount as a scholarship. The student must include the amount in their income tax calculation. For a more detailed explanation, please visit the Canada Revenue Agency website.

T4 (Statement of Remuneration Paid)

This tax form, which shows any income you have earned at York, is mailed separately by the Human Resources and Employee Relations Payroll Department. T4 forms are not yet available online.

Ontario Tax Credit

If you lived in a residence at a designated Ontario university, college or private school residence, you can claim only $25 as your occupancy cost for the part of the year you lived in such a residence.

Ontario tax credits are funded by the province. The Canada Revenue Agency administers the program on behalf of Ontario through the federal income tax system. Claim your tax credit on the Application for the 2015 Ontario Trillium Benefit and the Ontario Senior Homeowners' Property Tax Grant (student residence in Part A, Line 6114) included in your federal T1-General income tax return. An official letter from the University is not required as the student completes the information requested in the declaration for the property tax credit.

The Canada Revenue Agency stipulates that you cannot claim meals and lodging as tuition fees. Current information on their regulations and guidelines for tuition and education amounts can be found online on the Agency's Students and Income Tax page.
