Updated information for the 2023 tax year

IRS Form 1098-T Tuition Statement is an informational statement required by the IRS to be issued by an eligible educational institution. This statement serves to alert students that they may be eligible for federal income tax education credits such as the American Opportunity Credit. IRS Publication 970 “Tax Benefits for Higher Education” as well as Chapter 35 of IRS Publication 17 provide additional information on these credits. The 1098-T, as designed and regulated by the IRS, may not contain all the information needed to claim an educational tax credit. The student may need to provide additional documents such as scheduled summaries or receipts.

1098-Ts are made available to students on Jan. 31 each year.  Students are notified via stumail when a 1098-T is available for download.

Spring 2023, Summer 2023 and Fall 2023

The information on Form 1098-T will help you determine if you, or your parents (if you're a dependent student) may be eligible to take the American Opportunity Credit or Lifetime Learning Credit to reduce federal income tax.

The College will need your (the student's) correct Social Security number (SSN) and current tax address. To update your tax information, please complete Form W-9.


Providing a change of address on Form W-9 does not update your student mailing and residency address. You will also need to complete a Change of Address Form and return it to Admissions for processing.

You can download a Form W-9 (PDF); copies are also available in the Bursar’s office, located in SC 113.

The information collected is confidential and will only be used for tax reporting purposes.

Please do not email your completed W-9 form.

Please return Form W-9 in person to the Bursar’s Office (SC 113) or mail it to:

Johnson County Community College
12345 College Blvd.
SC 113, Box 3
Overland Park KS 66210-1299

If you do not see a 1098-T in MyFinances or in the MyRecords tab within MyJCCC, please email the Bursar's Office. You MUST have a valid address on file or a 1098-T will not be generated.

Please note: If you took a continuing education course, a 1098-T will not be available.  Educational institutions are not required to provide a 1098-T for continuing education courses.  Consult your tax preparer for alternative documentation.

The figure in Box 1, amounts paid for qualified tuition and related expenses, includes the total amount PAID in the calendar year for Spring 2023, Summer 2023 and Fall 2023. Please note, when the College is closed, payments received in the mail will be credited after the College reopens; postmarks will not be considered.

Nonqualified expenses are defined as books/supplies, parking or library fees, childcare and other fees.

The figure in Box 5 scholarships or grants includes ALL scholarships, grants and payments made by a third party. These may include payments made for nonqualifying tuition and related expenses. Please seek the advice of a tax professional if you have questions about the variances between Box 1 and Box 5 of the form.

If there is a number in Box 4, then there was an adjustment to a prior year's payment. If you have questions on how to use this number, please contact your tax preparer. If you have questions on how the number is calculated, contact the Bursar office for clarification.

Email the Bursar's Office and explain what information you think is incorrect. Be sure to provide your student ID number in the body of your message. If Form 1098-T does contain incorrect information, a corrected form will be issued.

JCCC uses payments made in the calendar year to calculate Box 1 of the 1098-T Form. Prepaid expenses will not be included in the Box 1 calculation (i.e., payments made in the Fall for the following Spring semester).  Please use your receipts as documentation for prepaid expenses.  Please visit and review how to handle prepaid expenses in Publication 970 - Tax Benefits for Education.

Please email if you need assistance printing receipts.

The American Opportunity Credit and the Lifetime Learning Credit are tax credits that may be available to you if you pay higher education costs. A tax credit reduces the amount of income tax you may have to pay. Unlike a deduction, which reduces the amount of income subject to tax, a credit directly reduces the tax itself.

For additional information about the Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997, consult your tax adviser or request IRS Publication 970, Tax Benefits for Higher Education, online or by contacting the IRS at 800-829-1040.

JCCC will not provide tax advice.

Read IRS Publication 970, contact the IRS at (800) 829-1040, or a tax advisor for information on how to determine if you qualify for one of the tax benefits.
