Changes effective 2018 and later
Beginning for the tax year 2018, DU will now report qualified payments received in Box 1. In years prior, DU reported qualified charges in Box 2. The change in reporting is due to a change in IRS reporting requirements. For questions in how to use Box 1 please speak with your tax advisor.
1098-T Box Details
Box 1: The total payments from any source received by an eligible educational institution in 2022 for qualified tuition and related expenses less any reimbursements or refunds made during 2022 that relate to payments received during 2022. Please note the amount in Box 1 may NOT equal to or sum to the charges paid for calendar year 2022 because all charges are not considered qualified tuition and related expenses as defined by the Internal Revenue Service. See below for a list of qualified and unqualified expenses.
