2016 Tax Documentation
1098-T forms will be available to students by January 31, 2017* either via email (if the student opted for electronic notification) or postcard mailed to your home address.
*If a student's scholarships and grants exceeded the cost of tuition (room and board is not considered as a qualifying charge), there will NOT be any 1098-T information available.
Students will need their Account Number (SSN), School Code (6W), and PIN/Password to access their ECSI account and retrieve their 1098T.
Below is the link to the instructions students can use to login to ECSI and retrieve their form:
In the section "How can I get my login information if I do not know it?" select the link 'click here to retrieve your login credentials'. Once you enter the requested information and submit, your credentials will appear. **Please note that the zip code entered must match the one on file that the school sent to ECSI.** Once logged in, select 'Tax Information'.
The information on the 1098-T form is provided to assist each Student/Taxpayer in preparing the IRS Form 8863, which is used to claim the American Opportunity or Lifetime Learning Credits. Once completed, the 8863 form should be attached to the Student/Taxpayers return to determine eligibility and the amount of the Education credit (if any) that she/he may be entitled to on their Individual Tax Return.
Students in the following circumstances will NOT receive a 1098-T:
· You took only courses for which no academic credit was offered (even if you are enrolled in a degree program),
· you are a nonresident alien and did not request that your school provide you with a 1098-T,
· your tuition was paid in full by scholarships and/or grants, or
· your tuition was paid by an agreement between your school and an employer or by the government like the Department of Veteran’s Affairs or the Department of Defense.
