Your Form 1098-T will be available to you electronically on or before January 31st through your student portal.

  • Box 1 includes all payments-cash/check/credit cards, loans, scholarships, State Prepaid Plan payments, etc. 

  • Box 5 includes all scholarships, grants and third-party credits processed by Belmont posted to the student account.

There may be a couple of possible reasons for this.

First, the amount in Box 1 only represents amounts paid for qualified tuition and related expenses (QTRE) and does not include payments made for room and board, insurance, health service fees, though important, are not considered mandatory education expenses for tax purposes.

Secondly, 1098-T reports amounts that the student paid in a certain year, and the pay date does not necessarily correspond to the dates that the classes were attended. For example, tuition for the Spring semester is typically billed in the prior year so a student may have paid tuition for the Spring semester in December even though classes don’t start until January. The best and most accurate source of information about the amounts that you paid for qualified tuition and related expenses will be your generated statements.

No, the University does not include amounts paid for books in the 1098-T. You should consult with your tax advisor to determine if payments for books, equipment or fees should be considered when preparing your income tax returns and determining eligibility for education tax credits or deductions.

You may print out a statement of your account activity in your MyBelmont student portal.

Some April graduates will not be issued a Form 1098-T because there is a possibility that payments for QTRE for Spring were made on or before December 31 of the preceding calendar year. If a student paid for the spring semester and any other outstanding QTRE charges in the preceding calendar year, then the student would not receive a Form 1098-T.
