Please note that the Federal and Provincial Governments have implemented changes to the T2202A (Tuition and Enrolment Certificate) which will impact how you claim your education expenses when filing your 2017 Income Tax.
T2202A – CHANGES TO FEDERAL
Effective January 1, 2017, the federal education and textbook tax credits were eliminated. However, this does not affect the ability to claim the tuition credit(s) on your 2017 return.
T2202A – CHANGES TO PROVINCIAL
Effective September 4, 2017 the Ontario government has eliminated the Ontario tuition and education tax credits. Students will be able to claim the education and textbook tax credits for months of study before September 4, 2017 (Winter and Spring terms only). The eligible portion of 2017 tax credits will continue to be transferable to a qualifying family member.
