Important Changes to 2018 1098-T

In previous years, your 1098-T included a figure in Box 2 that represented the qualified tuition and related expenses (QTRE) we billed to your student account for the calendar (tax) year. Due to a change in reporting requirements under federal law, beginning with tax year 2018, we will report in Box 1 the amount of QTRE you paid during the year.

The effect of this change will result in the 2018 1098-T reflecting all payments we received on your account related to 2018 QTRE, if those payments were received between January 1, 2018 and December 31, 2018. Any payments associated with spring 2018 charges that were paid prior to January 1, 2018 will not be reflected on your 2018 1098-T.

Depending on your income (or your family's income, if you are a dependent), whether you were considered full or half-time enrolled, and the amount of your qualified educational expenses for the year, you may be eligible for a federal education tax credit. (You can find detailed information about claiming education tax credits in IRS Publication 970, page 9.)

The dollar amounts reported on your Form 1098-T may assist you in completing IRS Form 8863 – the form used for calculating the education tax credits that a taxpayer may claim as part of your tax return.

Texas Tech University is unable to provide you with individual tax advice, but should you have questions, you should seek the counsel of an informed tax preparer or advisor.

Below is a blank sample of the 2018 Form 1098-T for your general reference. You will be able to access your completed 2018 1098T online from your Raiderlink portal no later than January 31, 2019. For more information about Form 1098-T, visit
