In January of each year, the school prepares IRS Form 1098-T for all eligible students. This form may be used to figure and claim educational tax credits. For more detailed information on this subject, refer to Internal Revenue Service Form 8863 or Pub. 970 Tax Benefits for Higher Education www.irs.gov/forms_pubs/index.html. By default, the school will send a copy of IRS Form 1098-T by U.S. Mail to the permanent address on the student record. By selecting the electronic-only delivery option, instead of receiving the form in the mail, it will be retrievable online through the UIW ePayment Center. The forms will be published no later than January 31, and will remain available indefinitely. A reminder email will be sent when the form is published. Enrollment in the electronic-only option may be cancelled at any time by editing the option online through the UIW ePayment Center.
To enroll in the electronic only delivery of the IRS Form 1098T, visit the UIW ePayment Center.
The 1098T will be available on the bottom right corner of the screen.

You may have been a recipient of the recently mailed 1098T. Shortly thereafter, it was discovered that our system caused incomplete information on some student records. The problem has been rectified; therefore another 1098T was mailed to all UIW students that were enrolled in 2007. This 1098T is flagged as “Corrected” please use this copy for your tax records. The online option also reflects the latest update. You can see your 1098T by logging onto:
