10 things you need to know about the 1098-T form.
- 1098-T tax forms will be available starting January 31.
- Students’ 1098-T forms are available on their myUCA and can be located through the instructions below.
- Students must make sure their mailing address is correct in the Personal Information section of myUCA
- The 1098-T tax form is sent to students who had eligible tuition and fee charges that were not covered by scholarships or grants for a calendar year. The 1098-T tax form will help the student determine if they qualify for an education tax credit.
- UCA properly reports eligible "Charges Billed" (not "Payments Received"), so the amount you paid has no bearing on the 1098-T form.
- Charges that are not considered eligible for tax purposes are Housing, Meal Plan, and Student Health Fee. These charges will not be reflected on an eligible student’s 1098-T.
- If a student received more scholarships or grants than eligible charges billed for that tax year UCA is not required to mail a 1098-T to the student.
- Book charges are eligible to claim, but it is the student’s responsibility to keep detailed receipts and claim them when filing taxes.
- International students that do not have an individual tax identification number (ITIN) will not receive a 1098-T.
- Please refer to IRS Publication 970 and IRS 1098-T instructions at http://www.irs.gov/ for more information about the1098-T.
