Tax Credits for Your Tuition Payments
In late January or early February of each year, qualified students enrolled at EvCC in the previous year will be mailed, to the address on file, a 1098-T notification from Everett Community College. This notification is related to the federal tax credit programs called the American Opportunity Credit (formerly HOPE Scholarship) or Lifetime Learning Tax Credit.
A the end of January, you can review your "1098-T IRS Tuition Statement" to help you determine whether the tuition and fees you have paid qualify for higher education tax credits.
If you need another copy of your official 1098-T, you may download one from the MyEvCC portal.
How do I download my Official 1098-T?
- Login to the MyEvCC Student Portal
- Click on "1098-T Resource" in the left menu"
- Click the Year PDF file to download
You may also pick up a copy in person, with photo ID, after Febuary 5 in Olympus Hall Room 104. Please review your "1098-T IRS Tuition Statement" first to make sure you qualify for an official 1098-T. If you qualify for an official 1098-T, you will have an amount listed in the Total Qualifying for IRS Tuition Credit section. If the total is blank, you may not have an official 1098-T for that tax year. Please call the EvCC 1098-T hotline at 425-259-8279 if you have questions about your statement.
If financial aid paid your tuition in full, you are not eligible to receive a 1098-T.
How do I get to the "1098-T IRS Tuition Statement" login?

If you are part of the international program you will only need to consider the information on this form if you will be filing a US tax return and meet eligibility requirements set by the IRS. Please contact your tax consultant or the IRS for information regarding eligibility.
These tax credit programs may be claimed against federal income taxes for the payment of qualified tuition and related expenses. It is the responsibility of the student and/or individual tax payer to determine his or her eligibility and the deductible amount of tuition/fees.
A college cannot provide you with tax advice, so instead of calling us, you may wish to find out if you might be eligible by reading information at these websites:
- IRS Publication 970 - Tax Benefits for Education
- Go to IRS.GOV and search American Opportunity Credit or Lifetime Learning Credit
You may also wish to consult the IRS or a tax accountant for assistance. Your own check receipts, credit card statements, or your own copy of your receipt showing tuition paid at the time you registered may support your claim.
For more information or questions, please call the EvCC 1098-T hotline at 425-259-8279.
If you believe there is an error on your 1098T, and/or if you do not have computer access you may request written information by submitting a written inquiry (with your name, student ID number, address, phone number and signature) to Administrative Services – 1098T IRS / American Opportunity Credit, EvCC, 2000 Tower Street, Everett, WA 98201.
