Important Notice Regarding Changes to the 1098-T Reporting Method

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) mandated a reporting change affecting IRS Form 1098-T. Starting with tax year 2018, we are required to report Payments Received for Qualified Tuition and Related Expenses. This is recorded in Box 1 of the 1098-T form and is a significant change to the reporting method used prior to tax year 2018. We no longer report the Qualified Tuition and Related Expenses previously recorded in Box 2. We continue to report Prior Year Adjustments (Box 4), Grants and Scholarships (Box 5) and Adjustments to Grants and Scholarships for a Prior Year (Box 6).

Please be aware that the purpose of the 1098-T is to support any claim for educational credit. The amount reported in Box 1 is for informational purposes and might be different than the amount you actually paid or are deemed to have paid. To learn more, see IRS Publication 970 – Tax Benefits for Education, or consult your tax professional.
