The 1098-T Tuition Statement is an Internal Revenue Service (IRS) form, provided by Cabrillo, to students who either registered for classes or had a reportable transaction during the tax year. Reportable transactions include the billing for any qualified tuition and fees a student must pay to be enrolled, and financial aid transactions. >
If you enrolled in courses during the Winter, Spring, Summer and/or Fall semesters for the prior year then we will create a 1098-T for you. Your 1098-T may also report courses registered for the following Spring as many students enroll for Spring in the prior calendar year. For example, if you registered for Spring 2015 in December 2014, the fees will be reported on your 2014 1098-T.
In an effort to go paperless, Cabrillo publishes the 1098-T to your WebAdvisor account by January 31 of each year.
In certain situations, a 1098-T may not have been generated for you:
If you were billed for qualified tuition and fees in the previous tax year, those amounts will not be reflected on the current 1098-T. When reviewing your records, please take into consideration the dates you registered for classes.
Cabrillo reports tuition fees (both resident and non-resident), student representation fees, and financial aid.
There are two methods for schools to report fees. One method is to report the payments made by students during the tax year, and the other method is to report amounts billed during the tax year. The method of reporting selected by Cabrillo is to report only the amounts billed during the tax year.
No. This form is for your information only. The 1098-T information is submitted electronically by Cabrillo College directly to the Internal Revenue Service. Information contained on the 1098-T form will be used by the IRS to determine if you qualify for an educational tax credit on your income tax return.
Cabrillo College cannot provide advice for determining eligibility or claiming educational tax credit. Ask your tax preparer or visit the IRS Tax Benefits for Education: Information Center for more information.
