IRS Form 1098T
The 1098T form is used by eligible educational institutions to report information about their students to the IRS as required by the Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997. This form is informational only and should not be considered as tax opinion or advice. It serves to alert students that they may be eligible for federal income tax education credits. Receipt of Form 1098T does not indicate eligibility for the tax credit. To determine the amount of qualified tuition and fees paid, and the amount of scholarships and grants received, a taxpayer should use their own financial records.
Note: TWU does not file a Form 1098-T or furnish statements for:
- Students who are not enrolled at least half-time or more for any academic period during the prior calendar year.
- Courses for which no academic credit is offered, even if the student is otherwise enrolled in a degree program.
- Non-resident alien students, unless provided a valid SSN or ITIN number and requested by the student.
- Students who do not have a valid SSN on file at TWU.
- Students whose qualified tuition and related expenses are entirely waived or paid entirely with scholarship and/or grants.
- Students whose qualified tuition and related expenses are covered by a formal billing arrangement between an institution and the student's employer or governmental entity such as the Department of Veterans Affairs or the Department of Defense.
DISCLAIMER: Please be advised that TWU is prohibited from providing legal, tax, or accounting advice to students and we are not responsible for any use you make of this information. Please refer to IRS publication 970 Tax Benefits for Higher Education at http://www.irs.gov/formspubs/index.html or contact a certified tax advisor for assistance.
As permitted by the IRS, the University has chosen to populate the amount BILLED for qualified tuition and fees in Box 2 on the 1098T as opposed to payments received (Box 1). Please note that the University does not provide the optional Box 1 payment information and will not provide a modified form..
