What is a 1098-T?

  • The IRS Form 1098-T is an information form filed with the Internal Revenue Service.
  • The IRS Form 1098-T that you received reports amounts paid to you for qualified tuition and related expenses, as well as other related information. 
  • You, or the person who may claim you as a dependent, may be able to take either the tuition and fees deduction or claim an education credit on Form 1040 or 1040A for the qualified tuition and related expenses that were actually paid during the calendar year. 
  • The Form 1098-T Supplemental Information that ASU is providing over the Internet can assist you and your tax preparer in completing your tax return. Follow the instructions provided on the Form 1098-T Supplemental Information page to view and print paid tuition information. 
  • There is no need to attach Form 1098-T to your tax return. 
  • All information and assistance that ASU can provide to you is contained in this notice.
