1098-T

The 1098-T form shows how much tuition you paid K-State in a calendar year. The information is provided to you and reported to the Internal Revenue Service in compliance with federal regulations. Note: The Internal Revenue Service modified the institutional reporting requirements for tax year 2018. The university now reports qualified tuition and related expenses paid during the calendar year in Box 1.

Delivery Methods

Students can choose to receive the 1098-T online or by mail. Paper forms will be mailed unless the student grants authorization to receive the form electronically. After the university has mailed 1098-T forms at the end of January, online access will be available to all students.

  • Receive the form online. Students can grant authorization to receive their 1098-T online through their KSIS account. Forms are usually available online in early January. Follow the steps below to grant authorization for electronic delivery.
    • Log into KSIS with your eID and password.
    • On the KSIS Student Homepage, click Financial Account.
    • Select Account Services, then View 1098-T on the left side of the page.
    • Select Grant Consent and follow the on-screen instructions to grant authorization to view your information online as soon as it is available.
  • Receive the form by mail. Students that do not grant consent for electronic delivery will receive their 1098-T by mail to the student's permanent address listed in KSIS. Paper forms will be mailed on or before January 31.
  • Designated Access. Parents or others with Designated Access can view and print their student's 1098-T online in their Designee Center after their student has granted authorization for electronic delivery or after paper forms have been mailed.

Understanding the form

Box 1: Total amount of payments received for qualified tuition and related expenses from all sources during the calendar year. The amount reported is the total amount of payments received less any reimbursements or refunds made during the calendar year that relate to the payments received for qualified tuition and related expenses during the same calendar year. The amount reported includes payments of past-due qualified tuition or related expenses from a previous calendar year if the educational institution previously billed the student for such amount(s). The amount in Box 1 will not necessarily equal charges paid during the calendar year as qualified tuition and related expenses excludes various fees such as parking permits and fines, housing and related fees, library fines and athletic tickets.

Box 2: Blank.

Box 3: Blank.

Box 4: Reductions in charges made for qualified tuition and related expenses made during the calendar year.

Box 5: Total amount of all scholarships, grants, sponsorship and waivers administered by the university during the calendar year. All types of gift money are included regardless of whether or not they paid a qualified tuition and related expense.

Box 6: Amount of any adjustments for a prior year for scholarships, grants and fee waivers.

Box 7: Indicates if any payments received for qualified tuition and related expenses reported for 2020 relate to an academic period that begins in January through March of 2021.

Box 8: Indicates if the student was at least a half-time student during any academic period that began in 2020. 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: Indicates if the student was a graduate student. The student is a graduate student if the student was enrolled in a program or programs leading to a graduate-level degree, graduate-level certificate, or other recognized graduate-level educational credential.

Box 10: Box will always be blank on any form from Kansas State University.

Frequently Asked Questions

I no longer have access to KSIS, the online student account. How do I regain access?


Periodic password changes are required to continue access to KSIS. If you need assistance resetting your password, contact the IT Help Desk.

 

Where can I get a listing of payments made to K-State?

 

To view payments and transaction by calendar year:

  • Log into KSIS with your eID and password.
  • On the KSIS Student Homepage, click Financial Account.
  • Select Account Services, then View 1098-T on the left side of the page.
  • Select View Transaction Detail.

 

Am I qualified for an education tax credit since I received a 1098-T from K-State?


K-State cannot provide tax advice. Please contact the Internal Revenue Service or a tax professional.

 

Why don't I have a 1098-T?


You may not receive a 1098-T if:

  • your scholarships, grants and sponsorships equal or exceed qualified tuition and fees.
  • you are a non-resident alien. K-State is not required to file a 1098-T these students. Non-resident aliens can request a 1098-T by contacting Cashiers and Student Accounts prior to March 15.
  • no payment of qualified tuition and related expenses was made during the calendar year.

 

The amount listed on the 1098-T does not equal what was paid last year. Is my 1098-T correct?


Only payments received in a calendar year for qualified tuition and related expenses are reflected in Box 1. The payments you actually made to K-State may have included payments for housing, parking and other optional campus fees that are not considered qualified tuition and related expenses. Additionally, charges you paid for in a calendar year may have been billed in the prior calendar year.

 

Why does K-State need my Social Security Number?


The IRS requires the university to report qualified tuition and related expenses annually. In order for the university to correctly prepare Form 1098-T, federal law requires you to provide us your taxpayer identification number. This is your Social Security Number unless you are unable to obtain a Social Security Number. Failure to furnish a correct Social Security Number may result in a penalty from the Internal Revenue Service.

 

Can I submit my Social Security Number in KSIS?


Yes. View instructions for providing your Social Security Number in KSIS.

If your Social Security Number in KSIS is incorrect, contact the Registrar's Office.
