Why do I need the 1098-T form?
In a nutshell, it is one piece of information you need in order to claim the tuition and fees deduction or an education credit on your taxes.
What is the 1098-T form?
We use the 1098-T form to report information about our students to the IRS, as required by the Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997. We are required to submit each student’s name, address and taxpayer identification number (TIN), enrollment and academic status. We also must report to the IRS information concerning amounts pertaining to qualified tuition and related expenses, as well as scholarships and/or grants, taxable or not.
How should I use the 1098-T form?
We provide a 1098-T form to each applicable student. This form is for informational purposes only, and alerts students that they may be eligible for federal income tax education credits. The form should not be considered as tax opinion or advice. While it is a good starting point, the 1098-T, as designed and regulated by the IRS, does not contain all of the information needed to claim a tax credit. There is no IRS requirement that you must claim the tuition and fees deduction or an education credit. Claiming education tax benefits is a voluntary decision for those who qualify.
