1098-T forms will be processed for all students with billable tuition and fees during the calendar year by January 31. Students have the option to receive their 1098-T form electronically instead of waiting to receive a paper copy. By signing up for electronic consent by December 31, notification will be sent to the student's Walsh College e-mail account when the 1098-Ts are available on WebAdvisor.
To sign up for electronic consent (or change your election) or to view your 1098-T:
- Log in to the portal
- Select "Financial Information" on the WebAdvisor for Students tab under the Student Home page
- Select "1098 Electronic Consent" or "View My 1098-T Forms"
Per IRS guidelines, institutions may use the amounts paid method (box 1) or amounts billed method (box 2). The College’s system supports the amounts billed method (box 2). Note that the taxpayer may not be able to claim a credit for the entire amount billed.
If you would like a calendar year statement of your account to assist you in the preparation of your taxes, please call (248) 823-1620 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. A statement will be mailed within one business day. Due to the large volume of requests, statements cannot be faxed. To expedite processing, please provide your student ID number.
Walsh College cannot provide tax advice or determine if you are eligible for a tax credit. Please consult your tax advisor or visit the IRS website. Tip: Search the IRS site for “Form 8863."
The IRS requires Walsh College to collect and provide your correct identifying number to file certain information returns such as Form 1098-T Tuition Statement. For students, this will be your social security number (SSN) or, if you are not eligible to obtain an SSN, your individual taxpayer identification number (ITIN). Please note that if you are a non-resident alien and do not have income that is subject to tax, you are not required to supply this information to us.
If you have not provided us with your identifying number, please do so by completing form W-9S Request for Student’s Taxpayer Identification Number and Certification.
Failure to provide your correct identifying number could result in a penalty from the IRS imposed on each incorrect document.
Please return the completed W-9S forms by December 1 to:
Attn: Business Office
PO Box 7006
Troy, MI 48007-7006
Or fax to the Business Office at 248-689-7834. Please note this information SHOULD NOT be emailed.
