Although Dordt University cannot provide formal tax advice, we encourage students and parents to access or obtain the following resources to assist in determining eligibility for tax credits:
- Publication 970, Tax Benefits for Higher Education. This publication can be obtained at any IRS office or downloaded from www.irs.gov/publications.
- Notice 97-60, Education Tax Incentives. This notice addresses specific questions that taxpayers may have concerning eligibility for tax credits.
- A comprehensive website covering tax credits created by the IRS at www.irs.gov/uac/Tax-Benefits-for-Education:-Information-Center
Under the provisions of the TRA97, Dordt University is required to report to the student and the IRS certain information concerning student status on a tax statement referred to as Form 1098-T. A copy of this tax statement will be mailed to students' home addresses on or before January 31.
