The 1098T form is used by eligible educational institutions to report information about their students to the IRS. A 1098T form is considered for informational purposes only and must be provided to all eligible students. The 1098T form serves to alert students that may be eligible for either the American Opportunity Tax Credit (AOTC) or the Lifetime Learning Credit (LLC). Eligible educational institutions are required by law to submit the student’s name, address, taxpayer identification number, enrollment status, academic status, payments (up to the amount of QTRE (qualified tuition and related expenses) billed), and scholarships & grants.

*Please note that it is the taxpayers responsibility to determine their eligibility for the educational credits and how to calculate them. Representatives of Sandhills Community College do not provide tax advice.
