1098-T FAQs Form

What is a Form 1098-T?
All eligible educational institutions must file a Form 1098-T for each qualifying student for whom a reportable transaction is made during the calendar tax year.
Please note that the 1098-T may not provide all of the information you need to determine eligibility for tax credits and deductions. Eligibility for any tax benefit depends upon your individual facts and circumstances. South Texas College cannot provide tax advice.

Why did I receive a 1098-T tax form? Am I eligible to claim a tax credit?
You received a form because your higher education expenses may be eligible for federal tax benefits. Our records show that you had eligible charges during tax year in question. South Texas College uses Tuition and Fees as a tax reporting method, which means STC reports in Box 2 BILLED qualified tuition and fee amounts that were processed through the student's account during the tax year.

Box 1 for payments received will be blank for all South Texas College students.

When and where will my 1098-T be mailed?
South Texas College makes 1098-Ts available along with Supplemental Information by January 31 each year. Log in to JagNet and view "My 1098-T Tax Information" under MyJagnet tab on Student Services section. You can also elect to receive your form from electronically to be mailed with a written request to the Cashier Office.

Why haven't I received my 1098-T form?
In certain situations, a 1098-T may not have been generated for you:

  • If you were on full scholarship, a 1098-T will not be generated.
  • If you enrolled on electronic delivery of 1098-T
