Tax Information

The dollar amounts reported on your Form 1098-T may assist you in completing IRS Form 8863 Education Credits. IRS Form 8863 is the form used for calculating the educational tax credits that a taxpayer may claim as part of their tax return.

Depending on your income (or your family’s income, if you are a dependent), whether you were considered full or half-time enrolled, and the amount of your qualified educational expenses for the year, you may be eligible for a federal educational tax credit. You can find detailed information about claiming education tax credits in IRS Publication 970 Tax Benefits for Education.
