Tax Receipts

Receipts for the previous year's tax receipts are made available by the end of February. 

T2202A Tax Receipts

T2202As are tuition tax receipts issued to all students for tuition related to the calendar year.  These show the amount of tuition that can be deducted for income tax purposes as well as the number of months eligible for the education deduction.

These receipts are provided through an online service on Student Center, which allows you to view your T2202A - Tuition and Education Amounts Certificate(s) from Taxation year 2000 and onwards.

T4A Tax Receipts

T4A tax receipts are issued for either scholarships, bursaries or other monetary awards.  

Western’s Student Financial Services is excited to inform you of our new online T4A service.  You can now receive your T4A using our online T4A service located in Student Center.  To use the online service you must “Consent” by February 10.  

By following the simple steps below to provide your “Consent” you will eliminate the need to print a hard copy T4A (if you do not need it) and will make it available online if you or your parents do need it for income tax purposes.

 To consent:  (You must use your mouse for clicking)

1.      Log in to Student Center and click on “My T4A Consent” under Tax Receipts
2.      Check the consent box and click “Submit”
3.      Verify your identity by typing your password and click the “Continue” button

You will receive confirmation at your Western email account immediately.  If you do not receive the confirmation email our office at regtax@uwo.ca

Note: if you “Consent” your T4A will be available by February 14.  If you do not “Consent” by February 10 your T4A will be mailed by February 28.

International students:  please consent prior to February 10.  This will eliminate the mailing of your T4A to an International address.  If you do not need a T4A for tax purposes, do not print it once it is available.

Bus Pass Receipts

There are no special tax forms issued for the bus pass. If you are claiming the bus pass amount charged with your Western tuition charges, you can use the online statement of account found at the Student Center as proof of amounts paid.

Undergraduate, Professional, Education and Continuing Studies students have bus pass charges that cross tax years and can claim the following:

* For students who were registered and paid for a bus pass in the 8 month 2011-2012 academic year, one half of that cost can be claimed on the 2012 tax year.

* For students who were registered and paid for a bus pass in the 8 months 2012-2013 year, one half of that cost can be claimed on the 2012 tax year and the remaining amount will be claimable in the 2013 tax year.

Graduate students can claim all three terms worth of bus passes within the given tax year.

International Students

The University of Western Ontario is required to report this information to all students to enable them to complete their Canadian tax returns. For information on whether you need to file a Canadian tax return and/or a tax return in your country of origin, as well as information on how to file a Canadian tax return as an international student visit  SDC's International and Exchange Student Centre. The IESC also offers income tax clinics for international students every year in March.
