You can print your 1098-T off the web!
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 tax credit, under the provisions of the Taxpayer Relief Act (TRA).
UC Hastings cannot determine if you qualify for a tax credit. You should obtain IRS Publication 970 and IRS Form 8863 or contact a tax professional about personal income tax situations. The IRS web site for forms and publications is located at www.irs.gov/formspubs/index.html.
UC Hastings has contracted with Vangent to generate and mail the 1098-T form to UC Hastings students. We have also contracted for toll-free customer service Monday through Friday, from 5:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Pacific Time, for Vangent representatives to answer your questions about TRA credits and eligibility. The toll free number is 1-800-223-0043. If you need to report an address correction for purposes of receiving your 1098-T form, you may do so by notifying the Records office.
Your 1098-T forms will be mailed out at the end of January. You can also print your form from the web by following these instructions:
Note the following about your 1098-T form issued by UC Hastings:
UC Hastings reports amounts in Box 2 because its student information and financial system only provides this option. However, you can claim the education tax credit only on the basis of qualified expenses you actually paid in 2014. To assist you in determining this information, we will make available to you a statement of the details of your tuition and fee account for your Spring 2014 through Fall 2014 billed tuition and fees. You may request your tuition & fee statement in writing at firstname.lastname@example.org.
