IRS Tax & 1098-T Information

  • Current Student
    • What’s new for the tax year 2018?

      The reporting method has changed due to new federal requirements for the 2018 Form 1098-T to use Box 1 Payments Received for Qualified Tuition and Related Expenses. 

      Box 1 reports combined payments from all sources, but it will not exceed the qualified tuition and fees billed during 2018. Box 1 may include payments that are also reported in Box 5 Scholarships and Grants. Therefore, the amounts on Form 1098-T Box 1 might be different from personal payments you made to ASU.

      Details that you may want for tax preparation are available through the online 1098-T Tax Notification. Current and former students can find it on the Financial Aid & Billing page in RamPort. 

      You can also find helpful answers to common tax questions using the FAQ link on the right side of this page.

    • What is FERPA?

      The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA), as amended, establishes requirements regarding the privacy of student records. FERPA governs:

      • The release of student records maintained by the university
      • Access to student records

      When a student reaches the age of 18 OR is attending a postsecondary institution, regardless of age, FERPA rights transfer from the parent to the student. Parents of ASU students may not receive information from a student’s records unless the student creates a FERPA/Proxy Authorized User from his/her secure RamPort account.

    • View your Student’s tax forms online with FERPA/Proxy Access

      Details that you may want for tax preparation are available through the online 1098-T Tax Notification.

      Students must create a FERPA/Proxy Access for you to view the Tax Notification. Without this authorization, you will not be able to see the Tax Notification. Once your student gives you FERPA/Proxy Access, you will receive an email with further instructions. Visit the FERPA/Proxy Access web page for more details.

      After the student has created your access, you may use the Proxy Login to view the Tax Notification.

    • View your Student’s tax forms online without FERPA/Proxy Access

      Details that you may want for tax preparation are available through the 1098-T Tax Notification.
