T2202A:  Education Credit Tax Forms

What is a T2202A Form?

T2202A (Tuition and Education Amounts Certificate) is an official statement for income tax purposes. It is issued to all students who paid income tax return. The form shows the amount of the tuition that can be deducted for income tax purposes as well as the number of months eligible for the education deduction. T2202A are available by the last day of 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 of that year. For instance, if you made a tuition payment in December 2015 for a course that starts in January 2016, this payment amount would be included in the 2015 T2202A form.
