1098-T Tax Form FAQ's

  • In 1997, the Taxpayer Relief Act established two education tax credits and a deduction for student loan interest. These credits are explained in detail in Publication 970 from the IRS.
  • The 1098-T form is a Tuition Payment Statement that includes information that colleges and universities are required to issue for the purpose of determining a student's eligibility for education tax credits. The 1098-T form issued by Hudson County Community College details payments made for qualified tuition and related expenses charges for the calendar year.
  • This form is intended to assist you or your parents in preparation of your federal income tax return.
  • Note: Just because you receive a 1098-T does not automatically mean you qualify for a credit. If you have questions about how to compute your education tax credit, you should consult your tax professional or refer to the IRS. Your accountant, tax preparer, or the Internal Revenue Service can best advise you in the utilization of this form when preparing your taxes.
**Important Changes beginning with 2018 IRS Form 1098-T Tax Statement**

In years prior to 2018, your 1098-T included a figure in Box 2 that represented the qualified tuition and related expenses (QTRE) we billed to your student account for the calendar (tax) year. Due to a change to institutional reporting requirements under federal law, beginning with tax year 2018, we will report in Box 1 the amount of QTRE you paid during the year.

Below are descriptions of certain information contained in Form 1098-T which will assist you in better understanding the form:

Box 1 – Payments received for qualified tuition and related expenses.  Shows the total payments received in 2019 from any source for qualified tuition and related expenses less any reimbursements or refunds made during 2019 that relate to those payments received during 2019.  (For example, if you were registered/billed in 2018 and were not registered/billed in 2019, however you made payments in 2019, this box may not reflect 2019 payments.)

Most common examples of Qualified Tuition and Related Expenses that are not included:

  • Add/Drop Fees
  • Course Related Books / Book Vouchers / Equipment
  • Deferred Payment Plan Setup Fees
  • Non-Credit Course Fees
  • Other fees (miscellaneous fees not appearing on your bill)
  • Student ID Replacement Fees
  • Transcript Fees

Box 2 – Reserved. Effective for calendar year 2018 reporting, the IRS has required all higher education institutions to report only in Box 1. This box will be blank for all students.

Box 3 – Reserved.

Box 4 – Reimbursements or refunds of qualified tuition and related expenses made in the current year that relate to payments received that were reported for any prior year.

Box 5 – Total amount of any scholarships or grants that were administered and processed during the calendar year for the payment of the student's costs of attendance.

Most common examples the amount reported in Box 5 does not include:

  • Tuition Waivers
  • Student Loans

Box 6 – Amounts of any reduction to the amount of scholarships or grants that were reported for any prior year.

Box 7 – Amounts billed for qualified tuition and related expenses, reported on the current year’s form, but are related to an academic period that begins in January through March of the following year.

Box 8 – If checked, the student was at least a half-time student during any academic period. A half-time student is a student enrolled for at least half the full-time academic workload for the course of study the student is pursuing.

Box 9 – If checked, the student was a graduate student. Since Hudson County Community College does not offer graduate studies, this box will not be checked for any students.

Box 10 – Hudson County Community College does not report this information.

  • You attended the College in the 1098 reported tax year, but you may have enrolled and been billed in the prior calendar year, meaning the information was included in last year's 1098-T, reducing your total eligible payments for this calendar year.
  • The IRS does not require the College to issue a 1098-T form if:
    • Your qualified tuition and related expenses are entirely waived or paid entirely with scholarships, or are covered by a formal billing arrangement.
    • You took courses for which no academic credit is offered.
    • You are classified as a non-resident alien.
  • You do not have a valid Social Security Number (SSN) or Individual Tax Identification Number (ITIN) on file with the College. To file a SSN or ITIN, fill out the attached [Substitute W-9S Form] and submit to the Bursar’s Office in person (70 Sip Avenue, Building A - 1st Floor; Jersey City, NJ 07306), by mail or via fax 201-795-3105, no later than February 15. Please do not email the form. Please allow 5-7 business days for processing in order to receive a 1098-T form via mail.
  • If you do not meet any of the exclusions above, and still have not received your 1098-T form (either by mail or after attempting to retrieve it online, per instructions below), submit an email to bursarFREEHUDSONCOUNTYCOMMUNITYCOLLEGE (from your HCCC email address) with “1098-T Request" in the subject line. Be sure to include your first and last name, student ID and phone number where you can be reached and someone from the Bursar’s Office will be in touch with you within 2-3 business days.
  • You only need to consent once to view or print your 1098-T. If the student does not consent to receiving the 1098-T statement through myhudson.hccc.edu, it is mailed to the student's permanent address that's listed in the system - postmarked no later than January 31st. Online forms are available by January 31st as well.
