Each January, the Bursar’s Office prepares Form 1098-T, Tuition Statement for Williams students. The original forms for the 2017 tax year will be mailed by January 31, 2018 to the permanent address on file for each student. A request for an additional copy of Form 1098-T must be made by the student (not the parent/guardian) since the form is issued in the student’s name.
Since the IRS does not require that Form 1098-T be issued for nonresident alien students, students with that status who wish to receive this form must submit a request to our office in writing via an e-mail to [email protected] before January 15, 2018.
Please note that the 1098-T provides information on the qualified tuition & fees billed and the scholarship & grant amounts that have been applied to your student account. This information can be used to determine eligibility for certain educational tax credits (American Opportunity and Lifetime Learning tax credits) and is NOT to be used to calculate the amount of your scholarship & grant aid that is taxable. You may visit the IRS website for additional information on Form 1098-T.
1098-T forms will not be issued for members of the class of 2017. Because Williams uses the “billed tuition & fees” method of reporting, not the “paid tuition & fees” method, there were no billed tuition & fees posted in calendar year 2017 for the class of 2017. All of the billed tuition & fees for members of the class of 2017 for their senior year were included on their 2016 1098-T forms since they were posted on July 8, 2016 and December 8, 2016.
