You may be eligible for tax credits through the Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997. To determine eligibility, contact the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), a tax consultant or an accountant. The IRS Form 1098-T Tuition Statement is used to assist the taxpayer in determining eligibility for an educational tax credit and/or deduction. The University of California has contracted with the Tax Credit Reporting Service (TCRS) to electronically produce your IRS Form 1098-T Tuition Statement and make it available for you to download it offline. UC Berkeley Extension issues you a Form 1098-T if you had at least one reportable transaction (such as a tuition payment or a program application/registration fee) during the calendar year. The IRS requires all educational institutions to request students to provide a Social Security Number (SSN) or an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN); log in to your student account to review or update this information under My Profile by the end of the calendar year. To access your 1098-T online, please refer to www.1098t.com, or call (877) 467-3821. If you had a reportable transaction during the calendar year and your email is up to date on your student account, you will receive an email notification from TCRS by Jan. 31 every year when your Form 1098-T is available online. Be sure your spam filter does not capture email from “UC Berkeley & the Tax Credit Reporting Service (TCRS)” at tcrs@xerox.com. If you do not receive a Form 1098-T notification by email by Jan. 31, log in to www.1098t.com with your ITIN, SSN or student ID to retrieve your Form 1098-T. See step-by-step instructions on how to download your Form 1098-T from the TCRS website.
