Tax Credits

The following information is provided as an explanation only and should not be construed as tax advice. IRS tax benefits may be available for higher education expenses.

The IRS 1098T form is issued to students with qualified tuition and fee expenses paid in the previous calendar year. The forms are generated by UT’s Office of Accounting and are available to view and print after January 31. Students can retrieve them electronically at MY IRS 1098T Tax Form and will also receive them by mail at the address on file for the student.

If you have taken courses with University Extension, or with both University of Texas at Austin and University Extension, the breakdown of these payments will be listed with the form’s Supplemental Information.
