General information on tuition receipts Official receipts for income tax purposes are issued once a year at the end of February, for the preceding calendar year (i.e. January to December). In accordance with Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) regulations, official receipts (T2202 forms) are only issued for tuition fees totalling $100.00 or more. Post-Secondary, Apprenticeship and Professional and Part-time Learning students can retrieve their T2202 forms online through MyDC. You will require your: Student identification number (9-digit 100 number) Date of birth (MMDDYY) or postal code (L1K7K4) uppercase no space or your MyDC password Please note: The total amount of tuition fees paid may not necessarily correspond to your T2202 because not all tuition fees are tax deductible. In addition, the T2202 is based on the January to December tax year and not the September to April academic year. Tuition fees not eligible for tax deduction include: Entrance or initiation fees to a professional organization; Administrative fees Meals and lodging; Medical care; Retained goods of lasting value (e.g. computer, tools or uniform); Materials Transportation and parking; and Durham College Student Initiative (DCSI) fees. Durham College makes no assertion as to whether students are entitled to claim the T2202. It is recommended that students verify eligible expenses with the CRA prior to filing their income tax. Refer to the CRA website for further information about eligible expenses. Submitting a T2202 tax form without a SIN number may result in your tax return being rejected by the CRA.
