IRS Form 1098-T Tuition Statement
The 1098-T tax form is a statement of qualified tuition and fees* paid to the University of Oregon and the amount of scholarships and grants received during the calendar year that is provided to the student as well as reported and filed with the IRS. In addition, the 1098-T tax form contains the filers (University of Oregon) address, Federal Tax ID number and contact information, along with the students name, address, social security number, and enrollment status. The 1098-T is intended to assist you in calculating your eligibility for tax credits, such as the Lifetime Learning Credit and the American Opportunity Credit. As an eligible educational institution, the University of Oregon is required by law to provide 1098-T Tuition Statements to students who were enrolled in courses at the University during the calendar year.
*Qualified tuition and related expenses are defined by the IRS as tuition and fees a student must pay to be enrolled at or attend an eligible educational institution. In general, not all charges incurred during a calendar year will meet IRS requirements. See Box 1 description below.
1098-T Reporting Method Changed Beginning With Tax Year 2018
In previous years, the 1098-T included a figure in Box 2 that represented the qualified tuition and related expenses (QTRE) 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, the University of Oregon will report in Box 1, the amount of QTRE paid during the calendar (tax) year. Click on this link for additional information;
- Box 1. Payments Received for Qualified Tuition and Related Expenses: The total payments from any source received by the University of Oregon for qualified tuition and related expenses less any reimbursements or refunds made during 2018 that relate to payments received during 2018. Please note the amount in Box 1 will NOT equal to or sum to the charges paid for calendar year 2018 because not all charges are considered qualified tuition and related expenses as defined by the Internal Revenue Service.
- Box 2. This box will be blank.
- Box 3. Checkbox for Change of Reporting Method: This box will be checked by the University of Oregon for 2018 due to the change of institutional reporting requirements under federal law.
- Box 4. Adjustments Made for a Prior Year: This box is used to report reductions in qualified tuition and related expenses that were reported in a prior year. This amount may reduce any allowable education credit you may claim for the prior year. This box will be blank for 2018 as this is the first year the University of Oregon has reported payments.
- Box 5. Scholarships or Grants: This box reports the total amount of all scholarships or grants posted to your account during the calendar year. Scholarships and/or grants will be reported in Box 5 and Box 1 (payments received).
- Box 6. Adjustments to Scholarships or Grants for a Prior Year: This box is used to report reductions to scholarships or grants previously reported in prior years.
- Box 7. Checkbox for Amounts for an Academic Period Beginning in January through March (the following calendar year): This box will be checked if qualified tuition and related expenses are paid in one year, but the academic period begins January through March of the following year. Example: Winter term charges are billed in December but classes begin in January.
