1098-T

As of January 31st, your 1098-T tax form for the 2013 tax year is available electronically on Banner Student Self-Service. This form informs taxpayers like yourself whether you are eligible for an American Opportunity Credit or a Lifetime Learning Credit when you or your family files taxes. The amount of the tax credit you may receive is as high as $2,500 for the American Opportunity Credit and $2,000 for the Lifetime Learning Credit, if you qualify according to IRS guidelines. For further details, please go to www.irs.gov or consult with your tax accountant.

The purpose of a 1098-T form is to inform the IRS of applicable charges and credits applied to your student account in a given tax year (January 1st. to December 31st.).

NJIT chooses to report qualified tuition related charges for 1098-T reporting to the IRS. Amounts paid in a given year are only reported to the IRS for informational purposes.

**Please note that most students pre-registered for Spring 2014 at the end of the Fall 2013 term.  Those items were billed to you in December of 2013 and will be reported to the IRS on your 1098-T form issued for the 2013 tax year.  Also note that Spring 2013 charges for pre-registered students occurred in December 2012 and were reflected in the 2012 1098-T form**
