New for Tax Year

Starting for 2019 tax year (January to December), Canada Revenue Agency requires that you provide your Social Insurance Number (SIN) or Individual Tax Number (ITN) so that it can be recorded on your annual tax year T2202 (and your 2019 tax year T4A if the tax slip is issued).

If you are planning on filing a 2020 tax return, please log into ACORN and record your SIN or ITN in ‘Profile & Settings’ by January 31, 2021.

If you do not have a SIN, apply for a SIN. As an international student, if you are not eligible to get a SIN, you may apply for an ITN.

If you file a 2020 tax return to CRA, and fail to provide a SIN or ITN to the University to report on the 2019 T2202, CRA may subject you to a penalty of $100 per section 162, paragraph 5, of the Income Tax Act of Canada and the University may be subject to a penalty of $100.

On February 21, 2021, the 2020 tax year T2202 and the T4A will be available on ACORN for you to view and print even if you have NOT recorded your SIN or ITN on ACORN.  This information will be submitted to CRA and if there is no SIN or ITN, the field will display 000-000-000.

You can record your SIN or ITN on ACORN and reprint the 2020 T2202 and T4A even after February 21, 2021 to file the 2020 tax return but the CRA T2202 database will not be updated until the beginning of the next month. The University will submit any 2020 T2202 information changes to CRA on a monthly basis.

For example if you record your SIN or ITN on ACORN from February 4th to March 31st, 2021, CRA will not receive the updated T2202 SIN information until the beginning of April 2021.
