How do I get Income tax receipts (T2202A and T4A) for Revenue Canada reporting?
All alumni will be able to access the recent calendar year T2202A Form as of around February 21 each year on ROSI (www.rosi.utoronto.ca). The T2202A Form is a Tuition & Education Amounts Certificate and the amount on the Form is used for reporting to Revenue Canada for Income Tax purposes. The amount on the T2202A Form will show the amount of tuition paid for the most recent calendar year.
Some alum should expect to receive, in the mail, the T4A Form before end-February. The T4A Form is a Statement of Pension, Retirement, Annuity and Other Income Form and the amount on the Form is used for reporting to Revenue Canada for Income Tax purposes. The amount on the T4A Form will show the amount each student received as income from the University of Toronto. For instance, awards and bursaries received from the Rotman School are considered by the Canadian government to be a source of income. In addition, please remember that the interest amount for the Scotiabank Loan Program, subsidized by the Rotman School while you are a registered student, is also considered to be a source of income and will appear on the T4A Form.
