Tuition tax credit

The tuition tax credit applies to all MCC examinations taken since 2011. Given that as of spring 2013 the MCC took on responsibility for NAC examination registration, tax credit receipts are also issued for the NAC examinations taken since 2014.

The tuition tax credit receipt is made available for printing in late February of the year following the year in which the examination was taken (e.g., the 2015 tuition tax credit receipt is available in late February 2016).
