IRS Tax Form 1098-T Information - American Opportunity (Hope) and Lifetime Learning Tax Credits
While it is not U of L’s role to act as a tax advisor, we feel it is important that you know about the benefits available through the Hope Scholarship and Lifetime Learning Tax Credits. Please share this important tax information with others if they will be claiming you as a dependent on their federal tax return.
In late January of each year, an email notification with instructions to access the electronic version of the IRS Form 1098-T is sent to students who qualified during the previous calendar year. U of L has contracted with TCRS to mail the IRS 1098-T forms to our students and to provide web access to the IRS 1098-T information supplied to the Internal Revenue Service.
UofL has elected to report by the “Amount Billed” method. This method reports all tuition and related charges assessed during the 2013 calendar year. Spring 2013 Continuing Registration students who had applicable charges assessed in calendar year 2012 WILL NOT have these amounts reported on the IRS 1098-T form. Spring 2014 Continuing Registration students who had applicable charges assessed in calendar year 2013 WILL have these amounts reported on the 1098-T form. The IRS Form 1098-T is mailed to your home address of record in the Student Information System.
On-line access to the 1098-T information is available at TCRS. You will need your SSN to access the information and you will be assigned a TCRS-PIN (not your UofL PIN) AFTER your first login. The University of Louisville is a Limited Service School with TCRS and has chosen only certain aspects of TCRS services. You will ONLY have access to review and print your 1098-T .
