|The 2012 T2202A forms are now available.
The forms will include payments made by February 22, 2013 that pertain to the 2012 tax year.
All York students, current and past, can print their completed T2202A and T4A tax forms directly from the Web by using the Electronic Forms Retrieval System (EForms). Below is a brief description of each of the forms.
This government-approved form shows how much tuition you have paid for the prior calendar year and what your Education Credits are for the period. T2202A forms will not be mailed.
Note about T2202A forms from years prior to 1998: students or former students who require tax forms for years prior to 1998 can request the forms by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. In the subject line of your e-mail, please enter the year of the tax form that you are requesting. Please note that we cannot send tax forms by e-mail.
All students who require tax forms for the years 1998 to the most recent taxation year can access these forms online by using the EForms system.

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 code 105. This amount reflects amounts you have received from York during the calendar year, i.e. January 1 to December 31.
Your T4A forms are available online and a hard copy is mailed to the address on your York student record by the end of February.
Note for students whose fees are covered under a tuition waiver:
Fee waivers are considered scholarships given to the student. Therefore, students will receive T4As with the amount as a scholarship. The student will now include the amount in their income tax calculation. For a more detailed explanation on this change, please visit the Canada Revenue Agency Web site.
This tax form, which shows any income you have earned at York, is mailed separately by 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. Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) administers the program on behalf of Ontario through the federal income tax system. Claim your $25 tax credit on the Application for the 2012 Ontario Trillium Benefit and the Ontario Senior Homeowners' Property Tax Grant (student residence 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 CRA regulations and guidelines for tuition and education amounts can be found online on the Students and Income Tax page.
