1098T Tax Information

What is a 1098-T?

The 1098-T is an informational form that outlines qualifying payments made to the college on a students' account for a specific calendar year. It is important to note that 1098T forms issued by DMACC are for informational purposes only; students receiving a 1098T form should consult a tax professional regarding education related tax benefits or implications when filing their taxes. The 1098T form is also used to report qualifying 3rd party payments or scholarships. Defined ​by the IRS, a qualifying payment includes balances paid towards the cost of tuition, fees, and course material required for enrollment. For more details regarding the 1098-T please contact at tax professional or refer to the IRS Website.

Depending on your income (or your family’s income if you are a dependent), whether you were considered full or half-time enrolled, and the amount of your qualified educational expenses for the year, you may be eligible for a federal education tax credit. (You can find detailed information about claiming education tax credits in IRS Publication 970, page 9.)

If you would like a total account summary that shows all charges billed and payments made on your account, please send an email from your DMACC email account to mybill@dmacc.edu​.
