1098-T Tax Forms are issued annually to John Jay College students who paid qualified tuition and fees during the tax year from January 1 to December 31.

The 1098-T form is used by eligible educational institutions to report information about their students to the IRS as required. Eligible educational institutions are required to submit the student's name, address, and taxpayer’s identification number (TIN), enrollment and academic status. Educational institutions must also report amounts to the IRS pertaining to qualified tuition and related expenses, as well as scholarships and/or grants, taxable or not. A 1098-T form must also be provided to each applicable student. This form is informational only. It serves to alert students that they may be eligible for federal income tax education credits.

Forms are mailed on or before January 31 of the following year directly from CUNY. If you have not received your 1098-T form, you may print a duplicate through your CUNY First student account. You may also request a previous years 1098-T from Bursar.

Only those expenses paid for by student loans or your own (or parent’s) resources may be included. If a pre-payment for tuition and fees applicable to a future semester was made, that amount will be included in the calculation.

Expenses NOT Included
TAP, PELL, SEOG, scholarships, awards from third party payments, books, transportation, meals, audit courses taken for no credit and expenses paid for a previous year’s tuition mat not be included.
