  • IRS Form 1098-T

    IRS form 1098-T Tuition Statement is an annual information statement only and is intended to serve as a guide for taxpayers in determining a student's eligibility for potential tax credits or deductions. The information being reported to the IRS verifies a student’s enrollment with regards to certain eligibility criteria.

    L&C reports eligible tuition expenses in Box 2: Amounts Billed for Qualified tuition and related expenses during the calendar year Jan – Dec. The amount in Box 2 might be different than the amount actually paid, especially if a student registers for the upcoming spring semester in October, November, or December. Per IRS regulation a taxpayer should use only the amounts paid during the tax year for qualified education expenses. In addition the 1098-T provides information on the amount of scholarships/grants received, any adjustments made for prior years’ tuition or scholarships/grants, whether the student was enrolled at least half-time, and if some or all of Box 2 is for the upcoming semester January - March. 

    For more information on eligibility rules, see:

    Lewis and Clark Community College cannot provide tax advice. A student’s accountant, tax preparer, or the IRS can best assist on specific questions related to a student’s individual tax return. The IRS expects taxpayers to maintain adequate records to support any information used when preparing their individual tax returns.
