1098-T Tax Reporting


Tax formsColumbus State Community College provides students with the opportunity to receive the 2015 Form 1098-T electronically. The 1098-T form can be viewed by visiting Columbus State Community College web site and logging onto your student account through CougarWeb.

The 1098-T Form is a "Tuition Payments Statement" that higher educational institutions are required to provide to eligible students and the IRS. You receive this form because higher education costs may be eligible for tax benefits. For more information please consult a tax professional or the IRS website at
