The IRS requires colleges and universities to file a Form 1098-T for each student enrolled, with only a few exceptions. This is an informational tax return to assist in the preparation of individual income tax returns. Please see the note at the bottom of the page for additional information on Form 1098-T.
Ohio Northern reports only the amounts BILLED for qualified tuition and related expenses (Box 2). ONU does NOT report payments received (Box 1) as the IRS does not require colleges and universities to report payments received. If the information on payments received is desired, it is available through the student eBill. Amounts reported in both Boxes 2 and 5 are based on the calendar year that the specific transaction occured and are NOT related to the term that the transaction applies.
Form 1098-T is available for download by either Students or Authorized Users. Internet Explorer is the preferred browser, but other browsers may be used. Specific instructions for Students and Authorized Users are found below.
If your Form 1098-T is Blank, it means that adjustments are required to your browser settings. It does not mean that we have supplied a blank form.
For Authorized Users to retrieve Form 1098-T:
If you are NOT already an authorized user, your student must set you up as one. The instructions to add an Authorized User can be found at: Add Authorized User, then click on "Adding Authorized Users" under "Policies/Instructions" section.
If you ARE already an authorized user, your student must give you access to view the Form 1098-T statement online. The student will need to go to: "Current Students", click on "eBills" at the top right, then click "Authorized Users", then "Edit", and then select "Yes" when asked "Would you like to allow this person to view your 1098-T tax statement".
Once access is granted to the 1098-T form, make sure that you have Adobe Acrobat Reader 8.x or higher. You can download the latest version at: Get Adobe Reader.
To retrieve the 1098-T statement, log in as an authorized user. DO NOT click "View" for Form 1098-T on the Account Activity page. It will give an Error Message and will immediately log out of eBill. Instead, click on "eBills" in the Black Bar at the top of the page. Then go to the section called "1098-T Tax Statement" and click on "View" next to the year desired.
