Yes, information from the T-1098 must be included with your electronically or hand mailed tax return. Several questions also must be answered.
I am doing an article now on FFFF, because there is no option to load the information from the 1098-T. This is problematic, because although the system is ready to allow the filing to happen, it will be rejected by the IRS.
I spoke with the IRS this morning, and they were not aware of the problem.
