IRS Form 1098-T-Tuition Statement
The I.R.S. requires colleges and universities to collect social security numbers or individual taxpayer numbers (ITIN) for all tuition paying students; and USF is required to provide students with IRS Form 1098-T (Tuition Statement) at the end of each calendar year. 1098-T information for previous years is available online for students through myUSF. This form is used by the taxpayer in the computation of any eligible tax credit.
If you have not done so already, please provide your Social Security Number by completing and submitting IRS form W-9S to Student Enrollment Services or by following the instructions at to SSN and Names Changes by November 1, 2018 to ensure your information has updated prior to the issuance of the 1098-T.
If you refuse to provide your SSN or ITIN, or you provide an incorrect number, the I.R.S. is empowered to impose penalties. Note: Institutions are not required to report the demographic and financial data for students with nonresident alien status during a reporting year unless the student requests a 1098-T form. To receive a 1098-T, students with nonresident alien status must specifically request a 1098-T from the Office of Student Accounts and have a social security number (SSN) or individual taxpayer number (ITIN) on file with the university by March 1, 2019.
For the Tax Year 2018, IRS Form 1098-T will be provided through myUSF View & Pay. You will need your myUSF username and password to access your 1098T online. If you have not consented to receive your 1098-T electronically only, a paper copy will be mailed to you. 1098-T forms for tax year 2018 will be available by January 31, 2019.
