Do I claim this?

Hello,

I received an income tax receipt for a French course that I took in the winter of 2016. It's just a letter stating I took the class and it was paid in full.

How do claim this? Do I use the turbo tax student program, I was planning on doing so because I paid off my loans last year and NSLC also gave me a receipt. The class was $320.

Thank-you

Enter $320 on line 320 on schedule 11 and follow the instructions. Make sure you do the same for your provincial forms as well.

Did you receive a T2202A? Or just a receipt? You need an actual income tax receipt (T2202A) to show it is eligible.

Hi everyone thanks for the replies

I didn't get a T2202A, just a letter stating that I paid for the course and they are issuing this letter based on section 118.5.(1) (a) of the income tax act.

I only have one letter, I'm not a full time student. I just took the course to improve my French and make myself more employable

I got two forms from this year as well. The T2202A and the letter. The T2202A has the course fees while the letter has the amount of the Student Registration Fee amount.

I just called them both forms are eligible for tax refunds.

As you took a French course, the only way it would work is if you use Turbo Tax in French.

No, its only in Turbo Tax (non-French). Why would you take a french course if you are doing everything in French?

I called the cra and I don't claim it.

1. It wasn't through a public institution such as a college.

2. The course was less than $500
