The Internal Revenue Service requires that Dalton State College report, on a 1098T form, qualified tuition and related expenses (required fees). In addition, the amount of scholarships and grants is also reported.
The 1098T is an information return. Its purpose is to assist you in computing certain education tax credits or deductions for which you may be eligible. For tax information, please visit the IRS website - www.irs.gov. Publication 970 provides detailed information about tax benefits for education.
Tuition and fees CHARGED to the student's account during the CALENDAR year are included in box 2 of the 1098T.
Scholarships and grants CREDITED to the student's account during the CALENDAR year are included in box 4 of the 1098T. We have no control as to when scholarships and grants are entered to the students' accounts.
The amounts in each box do not necessarily relate to a term or semester. They are determined by the DATE they appear on the student's account.
PLEASE NOTE - tuition and fees charged for the spring semester, 2013, are reported on the 2012 1098T if the student registered in November or December, 2012 during early registration. If the student registered in January, 2013, the charges will be reported on the 2013 1098T.
1098T forms for 2012 were mailed to the student's PERMANENT address. We are not required to produce forms or report to the IRS if the amount in box 4 (scholarships/grants) is greater than the amount in box 2 (qualified tuition and related expenses).
We can not provide tax advice or provide information beyond what is presented here concerning the 1098T or tax credits, etc. Please review Publication 970 or consult with your tax advisor for information about education related tax issues.
