Tax Information: 1098T

Pellissippi State Community College releases 1098-T forms each year before January 31. Once the 1098-T data has been processed, the form information is available on the student's myPellissippi account.  For those students who have not consented to an electronic 1098-T form the 1098-T is mailed to the student's permanent home address.

Per IRS regulations, Pellissippi State provides the total amount of payments posted to the student account up to the total amount of qualified educational expenses billed for the tax year in Box 1. We report the total assistance received (financial aid, third party, etc.) for the tax year in Box 5. Students can access their student account on myPellissippi or their personal receipts/documents for more information regarding the total amount paid and charged by the institution.

Why did I not receive a 1098-T form?

The IRS instructions state that educational institutions are not required to furnish 1098-T forms for:

  • Courses for which no academic credit is offered, even if the student is otherwise enrolled in a degree program
  • Nonresident alien students, unless requested by the student. Request must be received by February 15th of the year following the requested tax year.
    • Example: A student request for a 2020 1098T form must be received by February 15, 2021
  • Students whose qualified educational expenses are entirely waived or paid with financial aid, scholarships or third party assistance

You may have not received a 1098-T form from Pellissippi State if:

  • You consented to receive the form electronically only
  • We have an incorrect permanent address on file
  • We do not have a Social Security Number on file

You would not receive a 1098-T form from Pellissippi State for the current year if you did not make any payments for qualified educational expenses in the tax year.

1098-T forms may also be picked up at the Cashier's Office with a photo id.
