Electronic 1098-T Forms Now Available

Electronic 1098-T Forms are now available online through the Maricopa County Community College District. Students can download the form by visiting my.maricopa.edu/1098t and clicking the link on the right-hand side of the page.

Commonly referred to as the Tuition Payment Statement, the 1098-T can help Rio Salado College students determine if they are eligible to claim education related tax credits such as the American Opportunity Credit or the Lifetime Learning Credit.

Those who prefer to receive a physical 1098-T should NOT download the electronic version. Hard copies will be mailed to the permanent address listed in the student record on or before January 31. Students who choose to download their 1098-T will NOT receive the physical document by mail, but may return to the website at any time to print additional copies.

Rio Salado students who would like more information on the 1098-T tax form are encouraged to visit the MCCCD 1098-T FAQ page, email the MCCCD Reporting Department at 1098T@domail.maricopa.edu, or call (480) 731-8700.
