1098-T and Related Tax Forms
What is Form 1098-T?
Educational institutions are required to file a Form 1098-T, Tuition Statement, with the IRS and to provide a copy of the form to the student, for each enrolled student for whom there is a reportable transaction. A reportable transaction includes payments received, amounts billed or refunds made for tuition and related expenses.
In order to provide a 1098-T to you for tax purposes, the Internal Revenue Service requires you to provide your Social Security Number (SSN) or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) to your school. Students who fail to provide a SSN or ITIN to their school can be subject to a fine by the IRS.
- If you have already have a SSN or ITIN and you just need to update your file with MSU Denver then fill out the W-9S form and either fax or hand deliver to the Office of the Bursar.
- If you don’t have a SSN or ITIN and are ineligible to receive a SSN, then you must contact a Certified Acceptance Agent. You are still required to fill out the W-9S form, but in the field requesting their SSN or ITIN you must write “APPLIED FOR”.
- If you are an international student then you should apply for SSN or ITIN following the directions below. You are still required to fill out the W-9S form, but in the field requesting their SSN or ITIN you must write “APPLIED FOR”.
This form is required for students to fill out if they don’t have a Social Security Number (SSN) or an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) on file with their school.
Waiver of Social Security Number Verification Statement
MSU Denver is no longer accepting the Waiver of Social Security Number Verification Statement due to recent changes in IRS regulations regarding the 1098-T. The 1098-T will now be reported to the IRS regardless of your visa or immigration status.
International students who have an F-1 visa should contact Leigh Eleazer (LELEAZER@msudenver.edu) in International Student Support to inquire about filing requirements for the W-7 and verification of immigration documents.
If you are ineligible to receive a Social Security Number, you may apply for the Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) by using the W-7.
This form is used to obtain an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) when a person is ineligible to receive a Social Security Number. This form is predominately used by both resident aliens and nonresident aliens working or going to school in the US.
DO NOT MAIL THIS FORM!
You can apply for an ITIN in-person using the services of an IRS-authorized Certified Acceptance Agent or make an appointment at a designed IRS Taxpayer Assistance Center. This will prevent you from having to mail your proof of identity and foreign status documents. After processing, the IRS will issue your ITIN through the mail. You will then file your Form 1040, 1040A, and 1040EZ as directed in the form instructions.
BY TAKING NO ACTION AFTER RECEIVING A SOLICITATION FOR YOUR SSN/ITIN, YOU ARE RISKING BEING ASSESSED A PENALTY FEE BY THE IRS!
