IRS Form 1098-T: Tuition Payment Statement
Western Kentucky University will send a 1098-T form (Tuition Payment Statement) to students who incurred tuition and fee expenses paid in the calendar year. Taxpayers are not required to include the form with their tax return. To help taxpayers determine qualified expenses eligible for the credit, a summary of charges, payments and refunds made in the calendar year will be provided on the form. This financial information should not be construed as tax advice. It is simply a summary of the University's financial records.
Students who have selected to receive their 1098-T electronically will be notified via email that their form is available on TopNet. This notification will typically occur during the second week of January.
The 1098-T form will be mailed to the student's current mailing address during the last week of January for those students who did not select to receive theirs electronically. Please allow two (2) weeks for delivery before calling the Billings and Receivables Office about the form.
Forms will also be available on TopNet under "Student Services - Tax Notification" beginning the last week of January.
