Important Changes to 2018 1098-T

In previous years, your 1098-T included a figure in Box 2 that represented the qualified tuition and related expenses (QTRE) we billed to your student account for the calendar (tax) year. Due to a change in institutional reporting requirements under federal law, beginning with tax year 2018, we will report in Box 1 the amount of QTRE you paid during the year. 

Depending on your income (or your family's income, if you are a dependent) whether you were considered full or half-time enrolled, and the amount of your qualified educational expenses for the year, you may be eligible for a federal education tax credit. (You can find detailed information about claiming education tax credits in IRS Publication 970, page 9.) 

The dollar amounts reported on your Form 1098-T may assist you in completing IRS Form 8863, which is used for calculating the education tax credits that a taxpayer may claim as part of your tax return. Texas Tech Univeresity Health Sciences Center El Paso is unable to provide you with individual tax advice. Should you have questions, you should seek the counsel of an infored tax preparer or adviser. 

Below is a blank sample of the 2018 Form 1098-T, that you will receive in January 2019, for your general reference. For more information about Form 1098-T, visit https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/i1098et_18.pdf
