Disclaimer 

The amount reported on the 1098-T may not be the amount you would report on your tax return. We recommend that you seek a tax professional for tax-related information. It is the responsibility of each taxpayer to determine eligibility for educational tax benefits and how to calculate them. CalArts cannot advise you on how to claim the tax benefits.

When is the form issued? 

Electronic copies will be available to all eligible students by January 31.  Hard copies will also be mailed out and postmarked by January 31 to all eligible students. 

Recommendations

  1. After January 31, 2020, review your statements on the CalArts Self Service page and review your 1098-T form.
  2. Seek a tax professional for tax-related information. CalArts cannot provide tax advice to students. It is up to each taxpayer to determine eligibility for the education credits and how to calculate them.
  3. If you are required to file a Federal Income Tax Return, you should do so before the IRS deadline.

Beginning in tax year 2018, the IRS requires reporting payments received for qualified tuition and related expenses (QTRE). 

Beginning in the 2019 tax year, CalArts reports adjustments to payments made for a prior year in Box 4. This includes reimbursements or refunds of qualified tuition and related expenses made in 2019 that relate to payments received that were reported for any prior year after 2002.

For a payment to be reportable, it must relate to qualified tuition and related expenses billed during the same calendar year.

Important tax information: Federal regulation allows those eligible to receive IRS Form 1098-T the option to receive the form in an electronic format instead of through the mail. In order to exercise this option, eligible recipients must provide consent to receive the form in an electronic format.




1098-T FAQ's


  • Does CalArts have your valid Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) issued by the U.S. Government (such as SSN or ITIN) on file? 
  • Is your address on file with CalArts correct? 
  • Did you make payments for qualified tuition and related expenses between January 1 and December 31, 2019?
  • Were you billed charges for qualified tuition and related expenses between January 1 and December 31, 2019? Important Note: Registration charges are billed on the date that you register. If you registered for spring 2019 classes in December 2018, those charges were billed in December 2018, and may have been part of the calculations for the 2018 form 1098-T instead of part of the calculations for the 2019 form 1098-T.
  • Please see “Special Exceptions” below.

After checking all of the above, if you still believe you had reportable transactions in 2019 and are due a 2019 form 1098-T, please email accounting@calarts.edu or call student accounts at 661-253-7847.
