What is IRS Form 1098-T?

Eligible educational institutions must file form 1098-T for all students they enroll and for whom a reportable transaction is made. You, or the person who can claim you as a dependent, may be able to claim an education credit on form 1040, for the qualified tuition and related expenses that were paid. To see if you qualify for the credit, refer to IRS Publication 970 Tax Benefits of Education, IRS Form 8863 Education Credits, and the Form 1040 instructions.
