2012 1098T statements will be mailed on or before Tuesday, January 31st.
All statements will be issued in the name of the student and will be mailed to the permanent address on file.
When can I expect my 1098T to arrive?
The IRS requires that all tax documents be mailed by January 31st. All 1098T forms will be mailed no later than January 31, 2013. This year, however, we have contracted with Vangent, Inc and they will be making the forms available to you electronically as well. To retrieve your 1098T electronically:
Launch a web browser and go to http://tra.vangent.com
Click the "First Time Students" Button
Enter your full First and Last name and your Banner ID
If records are present for you, you will be instructed to create an account. Follow the instructions on the website to create a free account and retrieve your 1098T. If records are not found for you or you have difficulty creating an account, use the "help" link in the left menu or contact Student Accounts.
Why did I receive a 1098T?
Bridgewater State University must provide a 1098T tax form to all students that had charges billed and/or scholarships and grants applied during the 2012 calendar year. The form can help determine if students/taxpayers are eligible for any tax credits. For further information on tax credits, please consult with a qualified tax professional or visit the IRS website http://www.irs.gov/faqs/content/0,,id=200041,00.html.
What am I supposed to do with the 1098-T form?
Keep it for your records. Since the University sends your 1098-T information to the IRS, there is no need to attach a copy of the form to your tax return.
Can BSU provide tax advice?
Please note that Bridgewater State University cannot provide tax advice. If you have any 1098T tax related questions regarding tax credits, eligibility or reporting, please consult with a qualified tax professional or the IRS website http://www.irs.gov/faqs/content/0,,id=200041,00.html.
I need to know how much I paid during the calendar year. How do I obtain that information?
Students and Authorized Users can log into the BSU Student Account Suite and run a payment history. Please log into the Student Account Suite at www.bridgew.edu/studentaccounts .
