About Form 1098-T
Opportunity Tax Credit or Lifetime Learning Tax Credit. IRS Form 1098-T is informational only, you do not need a copy attached to your taxes.
Box 1 is left blank intentionally, as VSC schools do not report based on payments received but instead report amounts billed in Box 2.
Box 2 shows the total amounts billed for qualified tuition and related expenses less any reductions in
charges. Qualifying expenses at Vermont State Colleges include tuition, college fee, athletic fee, student
activity fee, technology fee and course fees. Non qualifying expenses are the transportation, infirmary,
insurance, room, apartment, and meal plan fees. .
Box 5 shows the total of all scholarships or grants administered and processed. These amounts include
federal and state grants such as Pell, SEOG, TAP as well as tuition waivers and graduate tuition
scholarships. The amount of scholarships or grants you receive may reduce the amount of any allowable tuition and
fees deduction or education credit you may claim for the year.
Box 8 shows whether the student is considered to be carrying at least one-half the normal full-time
workload for a course of study at the college. If the student is at least half-time for at least one academic
period beginning during the tax year, then one of the requirements of the American Opportunity Tax
Credit is met.
Box 9 shows whether the student is considered to be enrolled exclusively in a program leading to a
graduate-level certificate or degree. Students enrolled exclusively in a graduate program may only
qualify for the lifetime learning credit.
This tax information about enrollment is being furnished to the Internal Revenue Service. Please be
aware, however, that the college is not responsible to determine a student's eligibility or to calculate any
education credit that may be claimed.
IRS Publication 970 explains qualifying tuition and fees, and payments. To receive the American

have paid for tuition and expenses on IRS Form 8863 and file it with your yearly federal tax return.

Information about Lifetime Learning Credit
The Lifetime Learning Tax Credit is a federal income tax credit that is equivalent to 20% of the first
$10,000 paid "out of pocket qualified tuition and related expenses" (see definition), up to a $2,000
maximum within a given tax year, and is nonrefundable (it is subtracted from the taxes you owe; you
cannot claim a credit for more than you owe in taxes; you cannot file a tax return solely to claim this
credit; you will not be refunded if your credit would otherwise exceed your tax).
Log into the bill payment site; choose "payments" tab; select "Payment History" Enter the date to include January 1-December 31 calendar year of the 1098T form.
If a student pre-registered for the current Spring semester in the Fall semester of the last calendar year,
the related charges will be included in Box 2 of the 1098-T, and you will see that box 7 is checked indicating that some charges are for
January - March 20XX.
For example, if a student registered for Spring 2016 classes in the Fall 2015 semester, those charges would not be reflected as part of the Box 2 amount in the student's 2016 1098-T. You will see the box checked indicating that some charges are for January - March 2016 in box 7 on the 2015 1098T form. Please have your tax preparer refer to your 2015 1098T to find the amounts billed.
Additionally, if you had registered for Spring 2017 classes in the Fall 2016 semester (as part of pre-registration), those charges will be reflected as part of the Box 2 amount in the student's 2016 1098-T. You will see the box checked indicating that some charges are for January - March 2017 in box 7.

facilities fee and some course fees.

We intentionally "X" out the first 6 digits of your SSN on the form for security reasons.
Reporting to the IRS requires that we include your taxpayer identification number (SSN or ITIN). It is very important that we have complete and correct information on file.
If a student receives a 1098T with an SSN they do not recognize, they should complete a form W-9
and submit this form to the Registrar's office. Or students can visit the office with their original signed Social Security card to have this information added or updated in their record. However, we cannot update the
SSN on their 1098T or produce a new form before this number has been added to their college record.
For students who do not have an SSN or ITIN on file by January 6th, a 1098T cannot be created by the colleges unless requested by e-mailing 1098T@vsc.edu with your name, student ID and college you attend(ed).
Never e-mail your social security number to anyone for any reason as it is not secure.
