The Form 1098-T, Tuition Statement, is issued to help determine if students or their parents are eligible to claim tax credits under the Tax Relief Act of 1997. Learn more about the American Opportunity Credit or Lifetime Learning Credit by accessing IRS Publication 970.

|In-state or out-of-state tuition||Technology Fees||Student Activity Fees|
|Consolidated Fees||Change of Program Fees|
Charges generally NOT included on the 1098-T:
|Late payment fees||Late registration fees||Personal or living expenses (room/board)||Books, meals, or travel|
|Courses taken for no credit (unless taken to improve job skills)||Insurance or medical expenses||Tuition/fees pad at any time other than in the current year, January 1 to December 31|
|The University produces Form 1098-T when the student has paid qualified charges within the tax year (from January 1 – December 31) OR for a semester occurring within the first 3-months of the new tax year.|
|The University DOES NOT produce Form 1098-T if:
Without the form, students may file their taxes by simply omitting any educational expenses or credits. Receipts or tuition statements may not be used in tax filings. Erroneously using these documents to claim tuition benefits will cause the filer to be audited. The only approved form for such purposes is the 1098-T.
By default, forms are mailed by the CUNY 1098-T server on January 31st of each year. The School of Labor and Urban Studies strongly recommends paperless delivery, as this is a faster, safer and more secure than traditional mail. To learn more about paperless delivery, click here.
