1098-T Tax Reporting


Tax formsColumbus State Community College provides students with the opportunity to receive the 2014 Form 1098-T electronically. We have contracted with a specialized provider, Tab Service Company, for this service. 

Form 1098-T 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

IRS regulations state that each student who wishes to receive their 1098-T electronically must also provide his/her consent electronically. Therefore, if you wish to take advantage of this, you must sign up.

1098-T tax reporting information for 2014 will be available online by January 31, 2015 for students whose qualified tuition and related expenses were incurred in 2014.
