Receipts for the previous year’s tax receipts are made available by the end of February. Students receiving a Brescia scholarship, award or bursary are required to supply their Social Insurance Number to the Brescia Business Office (St. James Building, Room 152) for tax receipt purposes.
Tax receipts are not issued for Brescia’s Residence. Residence fees cannot be claimed as rent payments on income tax returns.
If you require a replacement copy of your T4 or T4A, you may request a printed or electronic copy at no charge. Please provide 5-7 business days’ notice for a replacement copy of your information slip(s). As many of these slips are being mailed out at the very end of February, please allow at least 7-10 business days for delivery in the mail PRIOR to confirming the need to request any replacement or duplicate. Replacement requests can be sent to email@example.com.
Brescia is required to report tax receipt information to all students to enable them to complete their Canadian tax returns. For information on whether you need to file a Canadian tax return and/or a tax return in your country of origin, as well as information on how to file a Canadian tax return as an international student, visit the International & Exchange Student Centre. The IESC also offers income tax clinics for international students every year in March.
Free Tax Clinics are organized by the Western University Students’ Council (USC) every year in March. All tax returns are prepared and electronically submitted to the Canada Revenue Agency by CRA trained and authorized volunteers. For more information visit the USC Income Tax Clinic.
For any questions or more information, please contact Tanner Pantry, Accounting Officer.
