The 1098-T tax form is an Internal Revenue Service (IRS) tuition statement which is intended to help students file their federal income tax return. The University of New Haven mails paper copies of the 1098-T tax form to students each January and also reports this same information to the IRS.
Please note that the release of 1098-T information is governed by federal privacy laws (FERPA) and cannot be released to parents or tax preparers without the authorization of the student.
