In accordance with Canada Revenue Agency regulations, each year the University provides electronic copies of the Tuition and Education Credit Certificate for eligible students by the end of February. Forms are posted online so that students can download them and print copies as needed; these forms are not mailed to students. Entitlements are based on the calendar year rather than the academic year. Detailed information on these tax forms is available at http://sfs.yorku.ca/fees/taxforms.
Eligible Tuition Fees
Only direct tuition fees are eligible for the tuition tax credit. Both the supplementary fees and any course material fees you have paid are not eligible and will not be included in the receipt.
Education Benefit: Months in Attendance
In order to be eligible for the education benefit in any month, a student must be registered for at least part of the month.
For information concerning eligibility and entitlement, as well as other aspects of income tax requirements, please consult the Canada Revenue Agency’s website (http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca/menu-eng.html) or contact your local Canada Revenue Agency office.
