The 1098-T tax form is your record of the qualified tuition and fees charged by the UW Colleges for the calendar year.
For the 2016 Calendar Year this includes the following terms:
- Winterim 2016
- Spring 2016
- Summer 2016
- Fall 2016
We report qualified billable tuition/fees, grants, and scholarships to the IRS. We do not report any payments.
You can view/print your own 1098T form for your records anytime after January 8th. You will receive an email in early January about how to do this. If you do not, you can also go to the following website to retrieve your logon information www.getmydocument.com/. If you do not have a current SSN or ITIN in the PRISM system, you will not be able to access your 1098T. You will need to download the W-9S form, complete it and return to your campus.
If you have any questions regarding your 1098-T please call (608) 262-7902** or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
** When leaving a message please be sure to indicate the nature of your call - if you have a question or if you just need a new form sent and your current address (if changed).
Common Question on the 1098T form:
Box 1 (Payments Received) shows a zero amount and I have paid my tuition - did you not get my payment, etc?
As required by the IRS, the University may elect reporting on the Payments Received or Amounts Billed method during the relevant calendar year. The University of Wisconsin Colleges is using the Amounts Billed method so Box 1 will not be filled in and instead Box 2 will be filled in.
My son/daughter is still in high school, where is my a 1098T form? If your son/daughter is still in high school or a high schoo special and the high school is paying for your child even though you paid the high school, you will not receive a 1098T form because the high school credit is reducing your allowable and billable tution to zero, therefore, nothing is reportable to the IRS.
