IRS Form 1098-T Tuition Statement
The 1098-T tax form is a statement of qualified tuition and fees charged by the Portland State University that is provided to the student as well as reported and filed with the IRS. As an eligible educational institution, PSU is required by law to provide 1098-T Tuition Statements to students who were enrolled in courses at PSU during the calendar year. The 1098-T tax form contains the qualified tuition and related expenses billed to the student by PSU during the calendar year. It also contains the amount of scholarships or grants posted to the student account during the calendar year. Qualified tuition and related expenses are defined by the IRS as “tuition and fees a student must pay to be enrolled at or attend an eligible educational institution.”
