IRS Form 1098-T
Form 1098-T helps taxpayers determine if they qualify for a federal tax credit or deduction because they are paying education costs. Receiving the form does not guarantee you are eligible for a tax credit or deduction. The IRS’s Information Center provides helpful explanations of federal tax benefits for education programs. Their Interactive Tax Assistant can assist you in determining eligibility for a tax credit or deduction.
