IRS Form 1098-T

Explanation of Form 1098-T

The IRS requires ӰAV College to provide students with a tuition statement called Form 1098-T. This information is provided to assist taxpayers in determining eligibility for claiming education tax credits or deductions. It shows the amount paid for qualified tuition and related expenses as well as the amount of scholarships received during a tax year.

Non-qualified charges such as housing, meal plans, insurance, late fees, fines, etc. are not included in the 1098-T.

According to IRS Publication 970, “the amount on form 1098-T might be different from the amount you actually paid and are deemed to have paid.” Due to the timing of charges and payments, some items may post in a different calendar year. Please consult your tax preparer for assistance.
