Tax Payer Relief Act of 1997

Tax Payer Relief Act of 1997

Tax incentives are available for higher education expenses. To find out if you are eligible to claim the Lifetime Learning Credit or the American Opportunity Credit, please consult your tax preparer.

In previous years, your 1098-T included a figure in Box 2 that represented the qualified tuition and related expenses (QTRE) we billed to your student account for the calendar (tax) year.  Due to a change in institutional reporting requirements under the federal law, beginning with tax year 2018, we will report in Box 1 the amount QTRE you paid during the calendar year.

FORM 1098-T Tuition Statements are mailed to students in mid to late January.

If you did not receive your 1098-T Tuition Statement, you may also view and print this information from the Bronco Web. Students will need their PIN to log in. Once logged in to Bronco Web, please follow the instructions below:

  • Click on Student Services and Financial Aid.
  • Click on Student Account.
  • Click on Tax Notification.
  • Enter Tax Year (2018)

This will display the actual 1098-T and give you more detailed information about the numbers you see on the form. If you still have questions or need another copy of your form, please call the Tax Payer Relief Act Hotline at 607-746-4899.
