T2202 forms are issued online by the University once a year, on February 28, and cover ALL courses taken and paid for in the previous calendar year. For example, the form issued in February 2021 covers all courses completed in 2020 (winter, spring, and fall terms).

Top Ten FAQs about T2202 Tax Forms

 

1. Why is The University of Winnipeg asking for my social insurance number (SIN)? How do I enter it?

Starting with the 2019 tax year, the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) requires all designated educational institutions to submit T2202 tax forms directly to the CRA. The CRA requires that the tax forms contain students' social insurance numbers (SIN) and so The University of Winnipeg is requesting your SIN in order to comply with this requirement.

Information on this change and requirement can be found at this link.

  

2. Are all of my tuition and incidental fees claimable?

No, only the claimable fees are reflected on your T2202. The following fees are claimable for 2020:

Undergraduate/Graduate Studies

Tuition fees
Registration fees

3. Why doesn’t the amount on my T2202 match the amount of money I paid the University?
a) Not all fees are claimable. See the list in question #2 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.

 

4. Will I be issued a T2202 if I do not provide my SIN?

Yes, T2202s will be issued for all students who paid claimable fees for 2020. Possible consequences from the CRA for not providing your SIN to the University as required can be here .

 

5. Will I be issued a T2202 if I have not paid my fees?
Only fees that have been paid are claimable. If you have only partially paid your fees, your T2202 will reflect the amount of the payment that is claimable.

 

6. What was the cut-off date for fee payments to be included in my 2019 T2202?
The University had to have received the payment by 4:00 pm February 5, 2021. If you make a payment for 2020 fees which the University receives after Feb, 5 2021, you may request a revision to your T2202 form.
