1098-T (Tuition Payment Statement)

Tax Information

  • The 1098-T form is required by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and is used by eligible educational institutions to report information for each student they enroll and for whom a reportable transaction is made during the calendar year, according to The Taxpayer Relief Act (TRA) of 1997.
  • Due to a change to institutional reporting requirements under federal law, beginning with tax year 2018, we will report in Box 1 the amount of payments received for qualified tuition and related expenses (QTRE) for the calendar year.
  • *North Carolina A&T State University is unable to provide individual income tax advice. If you have any 1098-T Tax-Related questions regarding the tax credit, eligibility, reporting your tax credit on your tax return, etc, we strongly encourage you to contact a tax professional.
