Tax Information/1098-T

We want you to have quick, easy access to your 1098-T for educational tax credits.  It is important the University has accurate reporting information on file so you receive the form you need and the IRS receives the correct information. Please check your personal profile information on your Student Center page.  If your home address has changed or your SSN/ ITIN is either missing or invalid, look below for instructions:

Is your HOME address up to date?  If not, please contact the Registrar's Office 262-472-1570 or email them at 

If your Social Security Number (SSN) or the Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) on your student account is either missing or invalid, you will not receive your 1098-T.  The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) requires all colleges and universities to request SSNs or ITIN's from enrolled students in order to comply with Form 1098-T reporting requirements that pertain to educational tax credits (pursuant to the Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997.)  The University of Wisconsin - Whitewater is requesting that you provide us with this information.  Please follow the link to the proper form on the Registrar's website

As required by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), From 1098-T is mailed by January 31 to all students who had qualified tuition and other related educational expenses billed to them during the previous calendar year.  Please follow the link to Frequently Asked Questions for 1098-T

Be sure to continue to check your UW-Whitewater email after graduation as we will continue to send important communications to you.
