The university will report to the IRS required information about students who were billed for at least one credit hour in any semester of a tax year. As required by law, 1098-T statements will be mailed by January 31st of the following year. If you were not billed tuition and fees for the preceding year, you will NOT receive a 1098-T. A 1098-T form is mailed to students with a valid social security number on file. If you did not receive a 1098-T but feel you should have one, please contact the Office of Student Accounts.
The 1098-T, along with your copy of your UB billing statements, should be used by your tax preparer to determine your eligibility for a tax credit. Because each taxpayer’s circumstances vary, we cannot provide tax advice or assistance related to the credit or how to claim the credit.
