Top Ten FAQs about T2202A Tax Forms

1. Why does my T2202A look different from last year? Why did the format change?
The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) implemented some changes which resulted in a modified format.

2. Has the University implemented the CRA’s changes for students filing their taxes with Saskatchewan and/or Ontario?
Students filing taxes with the province of Ontario or Saskatchewan are asked to self-identify to their appropriate UWinnipeg division so that we may ensure that your T2202A is correct for your specific province.

For questions and support please contact the appropriate department:

3. Are all of my tuition and incidental fees claimable?
No, only the claimable fees are reflected on your T2202A. The following fees are claimable for 2017:

Undergraduate/Graduate Studies

Tuition fees
Registration fees
Student Life fees
Information Technology fees
Facility fee
Fitness Centre levy
RecPlex fees
Lab fees
Online fees
Menno Simmons fees

Professional, Applied and Continuing Education (PACE) Studies

Tuition fees
Application fees

English Language Program (ELP) Studies

English as a Second Language Teacher Certificate Program fees

Academic English Level 5 fees

Part-Time Program – Academic Learning & Speaking and Academic Writing fees

4. Why doesn’t the amount on my T2202A match the amount of money I paid the University?
a) Not all fees are claimable. See the list in question #3 as well as consult the CRA’s website.
b) The CRA requires the University to match the fees to the attendance dates of the courses, not our fee deadlines or the date of a payment. If a course spans two calendar years, the claimable amounts are split between the two calendar/tax years.
c) Only fees that have been paid are claimable.

5. Why doesn’t the dollar amount for certain months match my fees for those months?
For students filing taxes for Manitoba, the division of fees over various lines/months is irrelevant. Only the total dollar amount is needed for students filing taxes with provinces and territories other than Ontario and Saskatchewan.

6. Will I be issued a T2202A if I have not paid my fees?
Only fees that have been paid are claimable. If you have only partially paid your fees, your T2202A will reflect the amount of the payment that is claimable.

7. What was the cut-off date for fee payments to be included in my 2017 T2202A?
The University had to have received the payment by 4:00 pm on February 16, 2018. If you make a payment for 2017 fees which the University receives after February 16, 2017, you may request a revision to your T2202A form.

8. Is the U-Pass Fee included in my T2202A amount?
No, it is not.

9. How can I get my T2202A?
2008-2017 (as applicable) are available on WebAdvisor. The new T2202As are posted on February 28 every year.
