10 things you need to know about the 1098-T form:

  • 1098-T tax forms will be available no later than January 31.
  • 1098-T tax forms are available through CashNet, on myUCA (current students) or Self-Service (former students) and can be accessed through the instructions below.
  • Students must make sure their mailing address is correct in the Personal Information section of myUCA or Self-Service.
  • The 1098-T tax form is sent to students who had payments received not exceeding 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 now reports eligible “Payments Received” (New for 2018), previously reported were “Charges Billed”, so any and all payments, not exceeding annual eligible tuition and fees, will be reported in Box 1.
  • 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 payments received for that tax year, UCA is not required to provide 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.
