Will I receive Form 1098-T?
Every Boise State student whose student account had payments made toward qualified tuition and related expenses during the calendar year will have online access to their Form 1098-T or receive it in a paper form in January. You may receive Form 1098-T even if you did not attend class during the calendar year. Receiving Form 1098-T does not necessarily indicate that you are entitled to claim any of the education-related tax credits or deductions.
What should I do with my Form 1098-T?
You should immediately give it to whoever is responsible for preparing your tax returns. If you prepare your own tax returns, you should keep your Form 1098-T in a file with your other tax documents. Form 1098-T should remain in your files; you do not need to attach Form 1098-T to your tax returns.
How can I get a copy of my Form 1098-T for a prior year?
Prior years’ forms beginning in 2005 are available online through my.BoiseState. Click on Student View, then Student Center. From the Student Center, click the Student Homepage tile then Student Financials. Select View 1098-T from the menu on the left side of the page.
Where can I go for help in understanding my Form 1098-T?
First, please review the FAQs on this page, because they will answer many typical questions. For general information on Form 1098-T and the related tax credits and deductions, you may also want to review the information available from IRS in Publication 970 (Tax Benefits for Education) or elsewhere on the IRS web site. Boise State staff are unable to provide any individual tax advice.
If you have questions about the specific transactions reported for your own student account at Boise State, please contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 426-1212.
Will my parents receive a copy of Form 1098-T?
No. We make form 1098-T available only to the student. The student is responsible for making his or her own form 1098-T available to parents, tax preparers or other persons.
Will Boise State send a copy of my Form 1098-T to the federal government or the State of Idaho?
Like all colleges and universities, Boise State is required to submit the data from your Form 1098-T to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) by March 31. The State of Idaho does not require us to report Form 1098-T data to them. If we are required to correct a 1098-T after March 31 it will be sent to the IRS as soon as it is corrected.
I took a professional development or continuing education course from Boise State this year. Why didn’t I get a 1098T?
Boise State does not issue Form 1098T for continuing education (non-credit) courses. If you need documentation of continuing education course fees, please contact the Division of Extended Studies at (208) 426-1709.
