IRS Form 1098-T:

The official 1098-T information for 2018 is available for review in Murphy Online as of January 30, 2019.  An eligible student (or proxy) can locate the form by following the path:
 Student Services > Student Account > 1098-T Summary Tax Notification for year 2018
Forms are also being mailed to students.

New for 2018:

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

The payments amount in Box 1 includes payments made by you and/or third parties, loans, and scholarships and grants applied to your student account; however, the amount is limited to your QTRE and has been reduced by refunds disbursed (if applicable.) For more information please review the 1098-T page in Murphy Online.
