1098T IRS Tuition Statement / American Opportunity Credit
Tax Credits for Your Tuition Payments
In late January or early February of each year, qualified students enrolled at EvCC in the previous year receive a 1098T 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.
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:
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 425-259-8279
Beginning at the end of January, you can review your previous year tuition costs by generating your previous class schedules via the Student Kiosk function on our website. We strongly encourage you to do this in order to doublecheck the dollar amount shown on the 1098T. We are aware that in some cases student loans may not have been calculated properly when the 1098T was printed, so it is important for you to doublecheck.
