1098-T FAQ

Payment Posting: Payments received in Student Accounts prior to Winter Break will be posted in the current year. Payments received after the college is closed for Winter Break will be posted when the college reopens. Click the calendar for actual dates: Payments made online through the PeopleSoft Student Portal will be posted the same day the payment is made.


What is a Form 1098-T?

In general, colleges and universities must file Form 1098-T for any individual enrolled for any academic period and for whom the institution receies payment of qualified tuition and related expenses during the calendar year. Institutions also must file Forms 1098-T for students who are not currently enrolled but for whom there was a prior-year adjustment made in the current year.

However, Form 1098-T does not need to be filed for:

 • Students whose entire qualified tuition and related expenses were waived or paid for with a scholarship.
 • Students whose entire qualified tuition and related expenses were paid under a “formal billing arrangement” where the institution:
    ◦ bills only an employer or governmental entity, and
    ◦ does not maintain a separate financial account for the student.
 • Nonresident aliens, except upon request.
 • The noncredit courses in which a student is enrolled, even if the student also is enrolled in credit courses.

When is my 1098-T available?

Students can elect to receive an electronic Form 1098-T via the PeopleSoft Student Portal and it is generally available the third week of January. Otherwise, a paper copy will be mailed via the U.S. Postal Service no later than January 31st to the mailing address on record.

How do I view my 1098-T

 • Log on to your PeopleSoft account.

 • From your Student Center, under the Finances tab, click link to view 1098-T.

 • Choose the tax year that you wish to view.


 • Log on to your PeopleSoft account.

 • Click on Self Service on the left hand side menu.

 • Select  Campus Finances  in the middle of the page.

 • Select View 1098-T and choose the tax year that you wish to view.

What do I do with the 1098-T form?

The purpose of the 1098-T is to help you and/or your tax professional determine if you are eligible for the American Opportunity Credit or the Lifetime Learning Credit. The 1098-T is just informational.

Why didn’t I receive a 1098-T form?

There are several possibilities:

 • You did not enroll in courses at FCC during the January 1st through December 31st calendar year.

 • You did not have any payments to report for Qualified Tuition and Related Expenses.

 • Your paper copy of the Form 1098-T was mailed to the mailing address on record and returned by the Postal Service.

How can I get my invoice?

You can request an invoice by contacting Student Accounts by phone at 301.846.2456 or by email. Invoices can only be mailed to the student or sent to their myFCC email account.

What time period does my 1098-T cover?

Payments in Box 1 only reflect classes paid by the student during that calendar year. Reporting activity on a calendar year basis may create a timing difference on the student's 1098-T. This is most apparent during the payment for J-Term and Spring semester. This difference is caused by payment activity being posted in a different calendar year. For instance, if you register and pay for a Spring semester course in December of the previous year, then the payment will be reflected on the 1098-T from the calendar year in which you paid.

Can I get my 1098-T from a prior year?

Yes. All years which you qualified for a form will be accessible by you online when you opt in to receive the 1098-T through PeopleSoft Student Portal.

Who can claim an Education Credit?

You may be able to claim an education credit if you, your spouse, or a dependent you claim on your tax return was a student enrolled at or attending an eligible educational institution. If a student is claimed as a dependent on another’s tax return, only the person who claims the student as a dependent can claim a credit for the student’s qualified education expenses. The College encourages students to seek advice from a qualified tax accountant when appropriate.

The Social Security Number (SSN) or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) on my Form 1098-T is missing or incorrect. What should I do?

Reporting to the Internal Revenue Service depends primarily on your SSN/ITIN. It is very important for you to have the correct information on file with the college. Follow these steps to have a corrected Form 1098-T generated:

1.Download and complete the Request for Student’s or Borrower’s Taxpayer Identification Number and Certification (W-9S) Form.

2.Submit the completed form to the Registrar for processing.

3.Contact Student Accounts once updated for a revised Form 1098-T.
