1. What is a 1098-T Form?

The 1098-T Tax Form is a statement of qualified tuition and fees payments made during the calendar year of 2019 (January 1, 2019 through December 31, 2019) as required by the Internal Revenue Service.  The 1098-T is for your information and is not intended to determine your eligible tax credit.  To determine your eligibility contact your tax advisor or visit the IRS website at www.irs.gov.

 

2. What are qualified expenses?

TUITION and FEES charged from January 1, 2019 through December 31, 2019 (if required for enrollment or attendance at the institution)
See example below from the IRS website:

Example: When Marci enrolled at College X for her freshman year, She had to pay a separate student activity fee in addition to her tuition. This activity fee is required of all students, and is used solely to fund on-campus organizations and activities run by the students, such as the student newspaper and the student government. No portion of the fee covers personal expenses. Although labeled as a student activity fee, the fee is required for Marci's enrollment and attendance at College X. Therefore, it is a qualified expense.

 

3. What are NON-qualified expenses?

Room and Board, Health Insurance, Medical Expenses, Travel, Clerical, Equipment, Books and other expenses that ARE NOT required for enrollment in or attendance at an eligible educational institution such as Late Fees, Late Registration Fees, and Payment Plan Fees.
