Form 1098-T is a Tuition Statement prepared annually by colleges and universities and is sent to students to provide information about their tuition and fee charges for tax purposes. The College only prepares a Form 1098-T for those students it is required to prepare them for.
The 2016 Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Form 1098-T will be sent to students by January 31, 2017 or made available electronically for those students who have elected that delivery method.
Data on Form 1098-T can be used for the purpose of determining eligibility for educational tax credits and may be important for preparation of income tax returns. The IRS allows institutions to report either payments received or amounts billed. Pima has elected to report amounts billed during the calendar year to the IRS. Payments received are not reported to the IRS.
The IRS requires that the Form 1098-T contain the student’s Taxpayer Identification Number (generally the Social Security Number) and address. In order for us to report accurate Form 1098-T information to the IRS, eligible students must have their Taxpayer Identification Number and valid address in the College's records at the time the forms are submitted to the IRS. To ensure you receive your Form 1098-T, please make sure the College has your Social Security Number (SSN) or Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) and verify and update your address in MyPima.
Taxpayer Identification Number and Form 1098-T
If your Taxpayer Identification Number is not on file, a notification has been sent to your current address on file.
To update your Taxpayer Identification Number:
- Visit any campus student services center and present a government issued photo identification (ID) and your Social Security Card or Taxpayer Identification Card.
- Submit an update to your student record by mail. Complete the Student Taxpayer Identification form, make a copy of your approved government-issued ID and SSN/TIN card and send these documents to the College using the information provided at the bottom of the form.
Note: Copies of identification are destroyed immediately after verification of the change form.
