1098-T Tax Forms

LCCC has partnered with a service firm – ECSI – to assist with 1098-Ts covering the 2015 tax year. 

For students who had qualified education expenses that were billed during the tax year, a 1098-T form should be mailed in the month of January for the prior tax year. If grants and scholarships covered or exceeded the qualifying educational expenses for the same year, the student will not receive a statement. 
LCCC and ECSI cannot advise whether or not you qualify for a tax credit.

Why didn't I receive a 1098-T form for the year?
You may not receive a 1098-T. A few of the reasons are:

  • You had no eligible tuition charges billed during the year.
  • Your grants and scholarships exceeded the "billed" eligible tuition and fees for the year.
  • You had adjustments (registration and or financial aid) from the prior year that offset the current year's billed charges.
  • Charges may have been included in a prior year.

Once again, LCCC and ECSI cannot advise whether or not you qualify for a tax credit.
