Students (or person claiming the student as a dependent) paying out-of-pocket for tuition, fees, or textbooks over and above grants, scholarships, or third-party payments may qualify for an education tax credit: the American Opportunity Credit or Lifetime Learning Credit.
Beginning with the 2018 tax year, all colleges are required by federal law to report in Box 1 all forms of payments applied to the student account. This will include such sources as student/parent payments, loans, grants, scholarships, and third-party payments. In previous years, Box 1 was blank and Box 2 included tuition and fee charges for the calendar (tax) year.
While it is a good starting point, the Form 1098-T does not contain all of the information to claim this credit/deduction. It is provided to help taxpayers complete IRS Form 8863 to determine their eligibility.
In order to view your payment history, log into MyKirtland at https://my.kirtland.edu/ics. Select the Student tab and on the right, you will see the “My Account Detail” window. Select the correct academic year and semester and click Submit.
The College cannot provide individual tax advice regarding your eligibility or the calculation of the credit. For further assistance, please contact your tax advisor or refer to Publication 970, Form 8863, and the Form 1040 or 1040A instructions at www.irs.gov.
