1098-T - Tuition Statement

Form 1098-T Tuition Statement Information

WVU Tax Services has partnered with a NEW business processing vendor, ECSI Heartland, in preparation of Form 1098-T Tuition Statement for use by either the students or their parents in the filing of their 1040 personal tax return.  Each year Form 1098-T for the recently completed calendar tax year will be available on-line starting mid to late January through ECSI Heartland. Hard copies will be mailed by January 31st to the student’s permanent mailing address as listed in the student’s Star account.

As a note to students, you will be unable to access your Form 1098-T on the ECSI Heartland website until we have completed the upload of the data file for the current year.  Please continue to check back with the ECSI Heartland website.  Once the information is available the system will allow you to view and download your information at that time.

Prior year Form 1098-T for the calendar year 2016 through present are available on-line through ECSI Heartland
If you need a Form 1098-T for the calendar year 2015 or prior, please contact the WVU Tax Services unit directly at tax@mail.wvu.edu or at 304.293.3379 extension 3.

Form 1098-T will not be issued to our International students unless requested by the student.  An International student considered a Non-Resident Alien (NRA) for income tax purposes generally is not eligible for the various educational tax credits and/or deductions. The IRS therefore does not require WVU to issue Form 1098-T to International students.  If you are an International student and have questions concerning this situation, please contact WVU Tax Services.

Feel free to contact ECSI Heartland with questions concerning your Form 1098-T through on-line chat
or at 866.428.1098.

Thank you,
WVU Tax Services
