Students: make sure you claim the tax credits, deductions, and benefits you are eligible for when you file your income tax and benefit return. Even if you have little or no income, you should still file your income tax return to get them.
Here are some tips to help you do your taxes:
1. Remember to collect all T4s from all jobs, and be sure to report them on your tax return. This is to make sure you get the correct refund amount.
2. Know what you are eligible for in advance. As a student, there are many things you may be able to claim, including your:
- Tuition fees
- Education amount
- Textbook amount
- Interest paid on your student loans
- Public transit amount
- Eligible moving expenses
- GST/HST credit; and
