Your 2020 1098-T is available for printing on the Maximus TRA website. You can access and retrieve your 1098-T online by going to https://tra.maximus.com Please refer to the 1098-T Instructions to guide you through the Maximus TRA login process located at https://www.crowder.edu/wp-content/uploads/2020/01/1098T_Instructions_2020.pdf
All 1098-T’s that have not been printed online will be mailed from Maximus TRA no later than the end of January to the address you have on file.
***You will only receive a 1098-T if you have made payments towards qualifying tuition and fees that were dated in tax year 2020.***
Depending on your income (or your family’s income, if you are a dependent), whether you were considered full or half-time enrolled, and the amount of your qualified educational expenses for the year, you may be eligible for a federal education tax credit. (You can find detailed information about claiming education tax credits in IRS Publication 970, page 9.)
The dollar amounts reported on your Form 1098-T may assist you in completing IRS Form 8863 – the form used for calculating the education tax credits that a taxpayer may claim as part of your tax return.
Crowder College is not able to provide you with individual tax advice. If you have questions, you will need to seek the counsel of an informed tax preparer or adviser.
