Line 25500 - Completing your tax return

Note: Line 25500 was line 255 before tax year 2019.

Use Form T2222, Northern Residents Deductions, to calculate the northern residents deductions that you can claim.

Enter on line 25500 of your return the amount from line 19 of Form T2222.


If you have not lived in a prescribed zone for a continuous period of at least six consecutive months at the time you file your return, you do not yet qualify. File your return without making the claim. When you qualify, you can ask us to adjust your return. To do so, follow the instructions at How to change a return.

Supporting documents

Supporting documents can include travel receipts, rent receipts, statements from your landlord, municipal taxes bill, and utility bills.

Filing online
Keep all your supporting documents in case the CRA asks to see them at a later date.

Filing a paper return
Attach your completed Form T2222, but do not send your other documents. Keep them in case the CRA asks to see them at a later date.
