Income Tax Information

For Income tax purposes, students in Residence do not pay taxes on their Residence fees as the University Residences are on tax-exempt land.  On Line 6114 (Student Residences) on your income tax form, you can claim $25 as your occupancy cost for the part of the year you lived in Residence.  You do not need to have proof of Residence or tax receipts for residence fee payment.

Receipts

The Department of Residence does not provide receipts. If you are filing either a paper or an electronic income tax return, you do not need to include receipts with your return.
