IRS Form 1098-T

What is Form 1098-T?

 The University of Dayton issues Form 1098-T annually to any student who paid qualified educational expenses in the previous tax year. Qualified expenses include tuition, required fees and course materials. The 1098-T includes information from the prior calendar year only.

If you are eligible to receive the 1098-T, you can expect it to be mailed by January 31. In My Payment Center, you can make the choice to opt out of the paper 1098-T and receive an electronic copy only.  You will receive an email notification and have the ability to view and/or print your form securely online immediately.


Form 1098-T Changes Beginning Tax Year 2018:


In previous years, your 1098-T included a figure in Box 2 that represented the qualified tuition and related expenses (QTRE) we billed to your student account for the calendar (tax) year.  Due to a change to institutional reporting requirements under federal law, beginning with tax year 2018, we report in Box 1 the amount of QTRE you paid during the year.

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 education expenses for the year, you may be eligible for a federal education tax credit. (You can find detailed information about claiming education tax credits in IRS Publication 970, page 9.)

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

University of Dayton is unable to provide you with individual tax advice, but should you have questions, you should seek the counsel of an informed tax preparer or adviser.

Below is a blank sample of the 2020 Form 1098-T for your general reference.
