Line 323 – Your tuition, education, and textbook amounts

The tuition, education, and textbook amounts allows you to reduce any income tax you may owe. Effective January 1, 2017, the federal education and textbook tax credits will be eliminated. This measure does not eliminate the tuition tax credit, and it does not affect the ability to claim the credits on your 2016 return.

Your educational institution will provide you with a slip that has the total eligible tuition fees paid as well as the months you were enrolled either part-time or full-time.

Using the slip and the links below, you can find out what you can claim and how to make your claim.

If you have eligible tuition fees, and education and textbook amounts from a previous year that were not reported, review How to change your return and obtain a copy of your notice of assessment or reassessment.

Supporting documents - If you are filing a paper return, attach a completed Schedule 11. Keep all your official receipts issued by an educational institution or other forms in case we ask to see them. If you are filing electronically, keep all of your documents in case we ask to see them. For more information, please consult E-services for individuals.
