What you do with a 1098-T to determine your tax credit can be tricky. Your lifetime learning credit can be measured on a specific form. The IRS provides a clear explanation. They say that the is no matter what you make your payments. The student does not need to be able to claim all benefits. It’s not required to add expenses paid by scholarship funds. The amount must be credited from the previous year. It is possible that the actual amount paid could be different from the amount that was stated. They’ll request the items listed when you send in your envelopes. It is expected that you submit two or one box. The first one will show the amount actually paid. One box reports what was actually payed. Prior to 2018 boxes 2 and 3 are what was charged. Experincing lumping of expenses is the case when you are billing the previous year. The traditional student will be provided with five tax forms upon returning to review the financial aid timeline.
