Changes to the 2018 1098T Reporting:

In previous years, your Form 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 to institutional reporting requirements under federal law, beginning with tax year 2018, total amount of payments received for qualified tuition and related expenses from all sources will be reported in Box 1.

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 https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/p970.pdf.

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.

Middlebury does not provide personal tax advice, but should you have questions, you should seek the counsel of an informed tax preparer or adviser.
