Barry University students needing a 1098T Tax Form can access this information online. Every January, Barry creates 1098T tax forms for enrolled students who qualify.
What is a 1098T?
The 1098-T is an IRS form entitled “Tuition Statement” that assists students in determining if they qualify for certain education related tax credits under the Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997(TRA97). The IRS requires eligible educational institutions to file a 1098-T form each year for each student (excluding non-resident alien students) enrolled for whom a reportable transaction is made during the calendar year.
The tax form reports what the student was billed for tuition and related expenses and how much was received in scholarships and grants for the calendar year (January 1st to December 31st).
The easiest and most convenient way to view and print this tax form is by giving consent on WebAdvisor. Once consent is given, students will have access 24 hours/7days a week to their tax information as long as their WebAdvisor login is active.
In order to receive a tax form each student must ensure that their social security number and current mailing address is on file with the Registrar’s Office.
