In accordance with Federal regulations, Youngstown State University will mail a copy of a student's 1098-T form for a given tax year by January 31st of the following calendar year. At the same time, an electronic copy of the form will be available via the student portal. The IRS gives educational institutions the option of reporting either payment(s) received or amounts billed. Youngstown State University has elected to report the amounts billed for each student (box 2 of form 1098-T).
A student's form will be mailed to the Billing address on file with the University.
Please note that IRS Form 1098-T is for informational purposes only. The data which appears on these forms can be used to claim educational tax credits, but the figures provided neither guarantee nor preclude eligibility for these tax credits. “Qualified tuition” in this context is determined by guidelines issued by the IRS. This may or may not reflect “qualified tuition” as determined by certain educational funding organizations, such as 529 plans. As a result of differing definitions as to what constitutes “qualified tuition”, there may be variation among the amounts that are deemed to qualify.
IRS regulations require that institutions of higher learning obtain the correct identifying number (e.g., SSNs and ITINs) for all matriculated students. Please review your SSN/ITIN on the 1098-T for accuracy. To change SSN/ITIN please call 330-941-3142.
