The Form 1098-T is used by eligible educational institutions to relay information about their students to the IRS, as required by the Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997. Every year, ITU will automatically generate Form 1098-T for students who are either U.S. citizens or U.S. residents, or international students who fulfill the following criteria: a) have a valid social security number or ITIN on record with ITU; b) have made payments for 1098-T eligible tuition and fee charges in the reporting year.
To submit a social security number or ITIN to ITU, the student must complete a Form W-9S by providing their full legal name, current mailing address, SSN / ITIN, and student ID number. The form can be found on the IRS website at this address: https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/fw9s.pdf
Every year, ITU will solicit Form W-9S from students who do not have an SSN or ITIN on record. In order for ITU to issue a Form 1098-T, a Form W-9S with the correct information must be received by the university by December 31st of the current reporting year.
Please do not email the Form W-9S; any forms sent via email will not be accepted. Due to highly sensitive information on the W-9S, it must submitted to Finance Services by one of the following methods:
1) Mail to:
2010 El Camino Real, #852
Santa Clara, CA 95050
2) Fax to:
3) Submit it in person to the Finance Services office at the ITU campus
LATE FORM W-9S SUBMISSIONS
The deadline for universities to issue Form 1098-Ts is January 31st of the year following the reporting year. The IRS assess penalties to universities for every late Form 1098-T submission. While ITU will honor late requests and issue a Form 1098-T past the IRS deadline, ITU will assess a $50 late Form 1098-T request fee to offset the IRS penalty. Any initial Form W-9S submitted after December 31st of the calendar year requested is considered a late request, and will have this fee assessed.
