What is IRS Form 1098-T, Tuition Statement?
Eligible educational institutions file Form 1098-T for each student they enroll and for whom a reportable transaction is made.
You, or the person who can claim you as a dependent, MAY be able to claim an education tax credit or tuition & fees deduction on Form 1040 or Form 1040A. As of tax year 2016, according to IRS PUB970, a taxpayer may claim an education tax credit of tuition & fees deduction if a student does not receive a form 1098-T because the student's educational institution is not required to send a form 1098-T to the student under existing rules.
Amounts reported on Form 1098-T
Box 1 shows the total payments received by an eligible educational institution in 2018 from any source (any source includes, but is not limited to scholarships, grants, 3rd-party payments, loans and out-of-pocket payments) for qualified tuition and related expenses (room & board is not qualified tuition or a related expense according to IRS Pub 970) less any reimbursements or refunds made during 2018 that relate to those payments received during 2018.
As per IRS Pub 970, the amount on Form 1098-T, box 1, might be different than the amount you actually paid and are deemed to have paid; one reason for this is the difference between an academic year (which starts in the summer and ends the following spring) and a tax year (which starts on January 1st and ends on December 31st) and a second reason for this is because most eligible educational institutions apply payments toward charges in a certain manner to comply with federal financial aid regulations and this manner often differs from how tax payers would like to see payments applied toward charges for educational tax credits or tuition & fees deductions purposes.
