1098-T forms will be sent via U.S. Mail no later than January 31, 2013.
The information on the 1098-T form is being provided to assist the student with filing for the education tax benefits/tax credit deductions, such as the Lifetime Learning Tax Credit, Hope Scholarship, Tax Credit, or the Above-the-Line Tax Deduction for Qualified Higher Education Expenses. See the IRS website for more information.
Liberty University is required to send a 1098-T form to any student that was enrolled and had qualified expenses billed during the previous calendar year.
There are several reasons why a 1098-T form may not be generated or received:
If you received more scholarships and/or grants than the amount of qualified tuition and fees billed.
If you are classified as a Non Resident Alien of Liberty University's student record database.
If you didn’t provide us with your Social Security Number (SSN)
If your 1098-T form was sent to an old or incorrect address.
Qualified charges include tuition and mandatory fees a student is required to pay in order to be enrolled at or attend Liberty University. Amounts paid for any course or other education involving sports, games, or hobbies are not eligible for the credit unless the course or other education is part of the student's degree program. Charges and fees associated with room, board, student activities, athletics, insurance, books, equipment, transportation, and similar personal, living, or family expenses are not qualified.
Schools can choose to either report qualified charges by payments received for qualified charges or by amounts billed. Liberty University has opted to report by amounts billed. Because of this, Box 1 will always be empty. Box 2 will contain any qualified charges billed for calendar year 2012.
If you would like your parents to receive a copy of your 1098-T form, please photocopy your 1098-T and mail it to them directly. Liberty University will only send the 1098-T to the address that the University has on their database. A copy of your 1098-T will be available to view on ASIST.
Faxing 1098-T forms directly to tax preparers is not a service that Liberty University offers.
Charges and fees associated with a room, board, student activities, athletics, insurance, books, equipment, transportation, and similar personal expenses are not qualified charges allowed by the IRS.
Charges and fees associated with a room, board, student activities, athletics, insurance, books, equipment, transportation, and similar personal expenses are not qualified.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org and Liberty University will provide a response. In the email you will want to explain why you think your 1098-T form is incorrect and provide as much detail as possible.
