Access the 1098-T: HERE
Note: Upon clicking the above link, the 2018 form displays automatically if one has been generated for you. Any available prior year forms will have clickable links at the bottom of that same page.
For your protection, the form will only display the last four digits of your SSN, ITIN, or ATIN (for example: XXX-XX-1234). However, the complete identification number will be reported to the IRS.
If you notice that your Form 1098-T does not display your correct SSN, ITIN, ATIN, or is blank, please complete Form W-9S and mail it to Student Financial Services and Cashiering, Lee Building, University of Maryland, College Park, MD 20742. If we are unable to verify your identification number, you will be notified by us to complete Form W-9S to verify that we are providing the correct information to the IRS.

Understanding Form 1098-T
Please read the Instructions for Student on IRS Form 1098-T and visit the Additional Resources area below to help you understand your form.
For tax years prior to 2018, any 1098-T you received from UMD included a figure in Box 2 that represented the qualified tuition and related expenses (QTRE) that 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.
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.)
The dollar amounts reported on your Form 1098-T may assist you in completing IRS Form 8863 – the form used for calculating the education tax credits that a taxpayer may claim as part of your tax return.

Although domestic student stipends are awarded through Financial Aid and appear on the Student Account, if you are not enrolled in any courses during the calendar year, you will not receive a 1098-T. Please refer to your monthly billing statements when preparing your tax return or filing estimated tax payments.
