In order to help you determine your eligibility for an education credit or tuition deduction, Baylor provides a Form 1098-T for each calendar year. In years prior to 2018, your 1098-T included a figure in Box 2 that represented the qualified expenses that were billed to your student account during the calendar year. Due to a change in reporting requirements under federal law, beginning with tax year 2018, Baylor reports in Box 1 payments received during the year for qualified expenses.
Students may view their 1098-T tax statement in the E-Bill System from the home page or under eStatements.
2022 Form 1098-T available in the E-Bill System by January 31, 2023
2022 1098-Ts will be mailed or available in the E-Bill System by January 31, 2023 based on the student's preference as indicated in the E-Bill system. Students are encouraged to consent to electronic delivery and, as needed, grant 1098-T access to Authorized Users.
If you paid qualified expenses during the year, you may be eligible for a federal education tax deduction or credit, depending on your income (or your family’s income, if you are a dependent) and enrollment status. The Baylor Student Accounts Office is unable to provide individual tax advice; we can only confirm and explain what we have reported. For more information about your ability to claim a tax deduction or tax credit, contact a tax professional. The IRS Publication 970 is a good resource for additional information on this topic.
Social Security Numbers: The IRS requires the student's Social Security Number (SSN) be printed on 1098-T forms. The Baylor Office of the Registrar processes all SSN and Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) changes. To update your SSN or ITIN on record, provide your SSN/ITIN securely via BearWeb. (Click Student Academic Services > Student Records > Update Missing SSN) Please note, if you are a non-citizen and you do not have a SSN/ITIN, no action is required. If in the future, you are assigned a SSN/ITIN, you are then required to provide the information to Baylor.
