What is the IRS Form 1098T Tuition Statement?
Information for the 2011 Tax Year:
Columbia Gorge Community College issues IRS Form 1098T Tuition Statement to students with qualified tuition and related expenses, scholarships, waivers or student aid. A total of 1,858 forms were printed and mailed by the College's service bureau to students the week of January 23, 2012 for calendar year 2011 reporting. The forms are mailed to students in a pressure sealed mailer.
Approximately 106 of these students also received a separate request for SSN on IRS Form W9-S earlier in January 2012. The form and accompanying memo provided instructions to students to provide their missing SSN on Form W9-S and return it to the Business Office in the self-addressed stamped envelope. Once the Business Office receives a student's correct SSN, a revised Form 1098T Tuition Statement will be printed and mailed to the student.
Students may also receive a separate IRS Form 1098T Tuition Statement issued by Portland Community College (PCC) if they received any federal student aid or state scholarships or awards which are processed through PCC. The deadline to mail forms to students is January 31.
