1098-T Tuition Tax Statement

Educational institutions are mandated by the Internal Revenue Service to send a 1098-T tuition statement to each enrolled student who has made a reportable transaction based on the IRS criteria.

Depending on your income (or your family’s income, if you are a dependent), whether you were considered to be enrolled half-time or greater for one term, and the amount of your qualified educational expenses for the year, you may be eligible for a federal education tax credit. Refer to IRS Publication 970, IRS Form 8863 and the Form 1040 for information and instructions about claiming education tax credits.
