Tuition fees
 

List the tuition by institution. If the total amount of tuition is less than $100, the program will not calculate the deduction, as this deduction would be denied anyway.

Tuition fees must be entered in the file of the person who incurred the fees. Enter a brief description of school expenses, and then enter the amount of tuition paid for the tax year.

Schedule 11 must be filed with the student's tax return.

Depending on your province or territory of residence, you may need to enter information that is specific to your province or territory of residence. Please follow the steps below:

1. In the "QuikClik Navigator" to the left of the screen, select "Interview setup".

2. In the section "Deductions and credits", check the box for "Tuition, education, textbooks, student loans" and click "Next" at the bottom of the page.

3. Return to the "QuikClik Navigator" and select the item "Tuition, education, student loans".

4. On the screen to your right, choose the line "Tuition, education and textbook amounts* (line 323)".

5. On the page that appears, enter the information relevant to your situation depending on where you live. Also, enter the number of months of post-secondary full-time or part-time studies, if applicable, as per the information appearing on your T2202A statement.

For Quebec residents, enter the information found on the RL-8 slip. For the 2013 tax year, the RL-8 slip has been modified. There are two boxes where the tuition or examination fees are entered, based on the date on which the expenses were incurred, namely "Boxes B1 and B2".

6. For the line "Eligible tuition fees paid for 2013", enter the total amount of boxes B1 and B2 of the RL-8 slip.

7. For the line "Portion of the tuition fees entitlement at a rate of 20% (Schedule T, line 30)", enter the amount displayed in box B1 of the RL-8 slip.

The program will generate Schedule 11 to determine the education and textbook amounts to which you are entitled, as well as Schedule T for Quebec residents.

Please note that you can carry forward this amount to a future year, or transfer it to a parent or relative

For more information about tuition, education, and textbook amounts, including the transfer and carryforward of fees, please consult the following links:

Employment expenses - Apprentice mechanic
 

If you are an apprentice mechanic and want to enter your eligible employment expenses regarding the purchase of tools, please follow the steps below:
 

1- In the "QuikClik Navigator", located on the left-hand side of the screen, click on "Interview setup".
2- Under "Deductions and credits", check the box for "Employment expenses" and click "Next".
3- Return to the "QuikClik Navigator" and click on the line for "Employment expenses". Then, choose the line entitled "Eligible employment expenses for an apprentice vehicle mechanic, painter, and body repairer", complete this new page according to the information that you have and click on "Next".
4- On the new page entitled "Tools expenses", choose the line "Tradesperson's tools expenses (for tool purchase by employees in 2013)" and complete the page based on the information you have.
5- In the "QuikClik Navigator", click on "Employment conditions" and answer the questions. These entries will pertain to the federal level. To enter your conditions of employment at the provincial level (Quebec), click "Employment conditions - Quebec" and enter the requested information.
 

The employer must complete the federal form T2200 (questions 11 and 12 are mandatory) as well as Quebec form TP-75.2. Quebec employers must complete Part 2 of the form. However, you still have to complete both the "Employment Status" and "Terms of Use - Quebec" forms if you are a Quebec resident.

It is not necessary to join the federal T2200 and Quebec TP-75.2 or the list of eligible tools. However, keep these documents in case the CRA or Revenu Québec asks to consult them.

For more information on eligible amounts and conditions that govern salaried tradespeople, consult the following links:
 

For the CRA:
 

http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca/tx/ndvdls/tpcs/ncm-tx/rtrn/cmpltng/ddctns/lns206-236/229/trds/menu-eng.html
 

For Revenu Québec:
 

http://www.revenuquebec.ca/en/citoyen/situation/depense_emploi/deduction_depenses_emploi/achat_outils.aspx
 

The eligible amount will be entered on line 229 of the federal return and line 207 of the Quebec return.
 

The program will generate federal form T777 and Quebec form TP-75.2.
