Discrepancy in OSAP Dept and Registration Dept. of College.In OSAP I am full time and received full time OSAP T4A 105,In Reg. Dept. I am part time..Shall I pay tax?

Discrepancy in OSAP Dept and Registration Dept. of College.In OSAP Dept I am full time and received full time but In Reg. Dept. I am part time.Now CRA has mailed me that I have to pay tax for box 105 T4A because I have been part time ..

I have been student from sept 2017 till Dec 2018.

I assumed from the beginning that full time is full time in all sections of college but now they have different meaning for full time and part time..They do not take responsibility and I do not know what to do with this tax claim from CRA?Who is responsible for this problem?

Answer

Because your tuition slip has you listed as a part-time student, CRA considers you to be a part-time student. However, you are still eligible for a scholarship/bursary exemption, even though you're not full-time. The difference is scholarship/bursary income for p/t students is limited to the tuition paid (plus related program fees). There's a calculation chart at the end of this PDF that will help you determine the exact amount of income that's not exempt:   https://www.canada.ca/content/dam/cra-arc/formspubs/pub/p105/p105-17e.pdf

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
