The forms will be mailed by January 31st for the previous year to the student's permanent address unless a billing address has been specified.
The IRS requires institutions to report either qualified payments received in box 1 or qualified tuition and fees billed in box 2 on the 1098-T form.
Beginning with the 2017 tax year, the university will report on qualified payments made during the calendar year, January 1st – December 31st. This amount is reported in box 1.
Box 1 amount will only include payments made for qualified tuition and related fees, not the total amount of payments posted to the student account. The amount in box 1 is to assist you in determining if you can claim an educational credit; however, this amount may not be the amount you can claim. Please consult the IRS Educational Credit publications and/or your tax advisor for help in determining the amounts you may be able to claim.
Box 5 will show all qualified scholarships and grants that appeared on your billing statement for those terms during the tax year.
