T2202 FAQ

Starting calendar 2019, all designated educational institutions (DEI) are required to file a T2202, which requires the student’s Social Insurance Number (SIN). The Income Tax Act (ITA) requires the DEI to make reasonable efforts to obtain the student’s SIN.  As per instructions from CRA, students who do not provide their SIN will have nine zeros defaulted in their T2202.

You must add your SIN by accessing your Student Personal Information record through the School of Continuing Studies student portal (SCS portal). Please note, you will need to add your Social Insurance Number (SIN) to your record by February 18, 2022 in order to receive your T2202 for the 2021 tax year.  Under no circumstances will staff accept a SIN over email.

For privacy reasons, any SIN information you previously saved will not be visible. Therefore, if you are unsure if the number saved in the SCS portal is correct, please re-enter in the SCS portal and save – the system will automatically overwrite any previous value with the most current information you save.

NOTE: Students that have taken courses at both the School of Continuing Studies and undergraduate or graduate degree courses at York University will need to provide their SIN through both the SCS portal and York University’s My Online Services portal.  As with prior years, this means you will have two separate tax receipts issued. 

If a Social Insurance Number (SIN) is not provided by February 18, 2022, the Form T2202 will be defaulted with nine zeros as per instruction of CRA.

For your own protection we will not accept Social Insurance Number (SIN) information by email.  Any SIN provided over email will be rejected and destroyed.

If you can’t remember your Social Insurance Number (SIN), please refer to the Canada.ca website for more information.

You only need to provide your Social Insurance Number (SIN), if you intend to claim the tax credit for a personal Canadian Income Tax return.
