While the Student Accounts Office cannot provide tax advice, here are some answers to frequently asked questions.  You may also visit the IRS website  Publication 970, or contact a tax professional for more information about your ability to claim a tax deduction or tax credit.

Why does the 1098-T Tax Form for 2018 look different than previous years?
In previous years, the 1098-T included a figure in Box 2 that represented the qualified educational expenses that were billed between January 1 and December 31. Due to a change in institutional reporting requirements under federal law, beginning with the tax year 2018, the Student Accounts Office will report in Box 1.

What is included in Box 1? 
Box 1 includes the total amount of payments received for qualified education expenses that were billed between January 1 and December 31. Qualified tuition and fees does not include room, board, insurance, medical expenses, transportation, and similar personal, living, or family expenses.
