What is the 1098-T form?
Form 1098-T (Tuition Payments Statement) is the information that colleges and universities are required to issue for the purpose of determining a student’s eligibility for the American Opportunity and Lifetime Learning education tax credits. The 1098-T form can be kept with your records and does not need to be sent to the IRS with your income tax return since AUM sends your 1098-T information to the IRS.
How will I receive my 1098-T form?
There are two options to receive the 1098-T form. Students can opt in to receive the 1098-T form electronically or they can have a paper copy mailed to the students’ mailing address listed in Webster. If a student chooses to receive the 1098-T electronically, a paper copy will not be mailed. The 2014 1098-T form will be made available by January 31, 2015.
How do I opt in to receive the 1098-T electronically?
Students have until December 31st to opt in to receive the 1098-T form electronically for the current year. The option to opt in will be made available again for the new year on April 1st. Below are the instructions to receive a paperless 1098-T form:
