REPORTING METHOD USED FOR 1098-Ts (beginning 2018 tax year)
Due to a change to institutional reporting requirements under federal law, all schools were required to change their reporting method for 1098-Ts starting 2018. In previous years, Oregon Tech reported Box 2 (qualified tuition and fees BILLED) on the 1098-T form. Starting with the 2018 tax year, Box 1 (PAYMENTS for qualified tuition and fees) will be reported on the 1098-T form instead of Box 2. Please see "1098-T Reporting Change Letter" and "IRS Publication 970" in the Document List on this page for more information.
Form 1098-T and your Oregon Tech account
The information reported on Form 1098-T refers to all activity that posted onto your Oregon Tech account in the calendar year indicated on the form. Note: calendar year activity will include all charges and payments for the winter, spring, summer and fall terms plus any amount charged at the end of the calendar year (i.e. in December) for the following winter term.
Oregon Tech reports the "Amounts paid for qualified tuition and related expenses" in Box 1. We are required to report information for "Adjustments made for a prior year" in Box 4 and "Adjustments to scholarships or grants for a prior year" in Box 6. Scholarships and grants are reported in box 5. Please see 1098-T 2019 Instructions to Students for a copy of the IRS Form 1098-T instructions provided for students.
