    Do I need to file a form 1098-T for my tuition I paid for the year?

    Is this just a deduction or is it required for me to file?

    You don't file a Form 1098-T for tuition you paid, you receive a 1098-T.

    There are a lot of choices to consider when taking a credit or deduction for education expenses. Sometimes books and room and board count. In some cases you can get a credit for the cost of your computer or internet service. I should write a hub with all the choices. One note: only the person claiming your exemption gets the credit.

    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.
