IRS Form 1098-T - Tuition Statement

IRS Form 1098-T - Tuition Statement

The I.R.S. requires colleges and universities to collect social security numbers or individual taxpayer numbers (ITIN) for all tuition paying students; and USF is required to provide students with IRS Form 1098-T (Tuition Statement) at the end of each calendar year. 1098-T information for previous years is available online for students through USFconnect. This form is used by the taxpayer in the computation of any eligible tax credit.

If you have not done so already, please provide your Social Security Number by completing and submitting IRS form W-9S to One Stop Enrollment and Financial Services or by following the instructions at to SSN and Names Changes by November 1, 2014 to ensure your information has updated prior to the issuance of the 1098-T. 

If you refuse to provide your SSN or ITIN, or you provide an incorrect number, the I.R.S. is empowered to impose penalties. Note:  Institutions are not required to report the demographic and financial data for students with nonresident alien status during a reporting year unless the student requests a 1098-T form. To receive a 1098-T, students with nonresident alien status must specifically request a 1098-T from the Office of Student Accounts and have a social security number (SSN) or individual taxpayer number (ITIN) on file with the university by March 1, 2015.

For the Tax Year 2014, IRS Form 1098-T will be mailed to the student's current permanent address. If there is no current permanent address on file, the form will be mailed to current mailing, check or local address.  To ensure proper delivery, please update your permanent address on the Student Self-Service tab through USFconnect prior to December 15, 2014. 1098-T forms for tax year 2014 will be available by January 31, 2015.
