MIT 1098-T Forms Available on MITPAY

Publication Date
1/31/2020

For each calendar year that a student is enrolled at MIT, Student Financial Services (SFS) creates a tuition statement— tax Form 1098-T—which reports a student’s qualified tuition and related expenses (QTRE).

The 1098-T forms for calendar year 2019 are now posted on MITPAY, the student payment portal hosted by SFS.

The dollar amounts reported on Form 1098-T may assist students to complete IRS Form 8863, which is used to calculate certain education tax credits that students may qualify for when filing their federal tax returns.

The VPF Tax team has prepared an FAQ on the 1098-T form which includes details on what expenses are included in the reporting form.
