Line 32300 – Your tuition, education, and textbook amounts
The federal education and textbook tax credits were eliminated in 2017. To see if you are eligible to claim a provincial or territorial amount, go to Income tax package.
To claim your tuition fees you must have received one of the following forms from your educational institution:
- Form T2202, Tuition and Enrolment Certificate
- Form TL11A, Tuition and Enrolment Certificate – University Outside Canada
- Form TL11C, Tuition and Enrolment Certificate – Commuter to the United States
- Form TL11D, Tuition Fees Certificate – Educational Institutions Outside Canada for a Deemed Resident of Canada
Contact your educational institution if you have not received one of these forms.
