2018 1098-T tax statements are now available electronically through the student self-service center. For those who did not choose electronic delivery will have their 1098-T mailed by Tuesday, January 29, 2019.
Beginning with tax year 2018, colleges and universities are required to report the amount of qualified tuition and related expenses (QTRE) you paid during the 2018 calendar year in Box 1 of the IRS 1098-T Form.
In previous years, most colleges, including the University of Hartford, reported dollar amounts in Box 2 representing the QTRE the College billed to your student account for the calendar (tax) reporting year. Under this new federal law, the College must now report the amount of QTRE you paid during the 2018 calendar year in Box 1 of the 1098-T form instead of reporting in Box 2.
Depending on a variety of factors, including income, enrollment, and the amount of your QTRE, you may be eligible for a federal education tax credit. The dollar amounts reported on your 1098-T Form may be used in conjunction with your own payment records to assist you in completing the necessary form for the educational tax credit. Please be advised that the University of Hartford is unable to provide you with individual tax advice. You can find detailed information about claiming education tax credits in IRS Publication 970, page 9 or by contacting a tax professional.
Please note that the University of Hartford is not required to furnish a 1098-T for students who took courses for no academic credit, are nonresident alien students, unless requested, and for those students whose qualified tuition and fees are completely paid through scholarships or by a third party.
