TAX INFORMATION (if applicable)
In order for the educational provider (“UCI”) to issue you a IRS Form 1098-T (Tuition Statement), we will disclose your payment and refund history to UCI. An e-mail notification will be sent to you by UCI in mid-November for whom IRS Form 1098-T (Tuition Statement) will be issued for the tax year. This notice informs you that a Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) is required, and describes how to update (i.e. add or correct) your records as needed. You must decide if either of those actions applies to your personal situation. You are requested to respond only if you need to submit an update.
UCI has contracted with the TAB Services Company (TSC) to issue your IRS Form 1098-T (Tuition Statement). This important tax document will assist you in determining your eligibility for one of the tax benefits covered in IRS Publication 970. UCI does not provide paper 1098-T forms by postal mail. All forms will be produced electronically and will be accessible to you online. In mid-January, students issued a 1098-T form for the current tax year will receive an email notification from TSC when the form is available. The TSC e-mail message merely is a COURTESY NOTIFICATION. The message body does not contain any personalized content, only generic instructions to access your 1098-T form online. You may access your tax form online, whether or not you receive the TSC e-mail message. TSC provides call center support during regular business hours. Call toll-free (877) 467-3821 if you need help with accessing your records, understanding your 1098-T, or learning about the associated tax benefits for education. TSC escalates issues to the campus when a detailed response is necessary.
