Tax Information

The TRA (Taxpayer Relief Act) enacted several benefits for college students, including the American Opportunity Tax Credit and the Lifetime Learner's Credit. Purdue University Fort Wayne will electronically send or mail IRS Form 1098-T to all qualifying students who were billed for credit courses during 2018.

The American Opportunity Tax Credit extended, through December 2017.

The credit modifies the existing American Opportunity Tax Credit. For more information please visit the IRS Web site.

Questions and answers are available on the IRS Web site.

You can access your 1098-T Tax Notification through goPFW.
Once you log in, click on the Billing and Financial Aid tab, click on the yellow dollar sign and under Statements you can click on your latest 1098-T Tax statement. Please note you may have to disable pop up blocking for your 1098-T to appear. 1098-T paper notifications will be electronically sent or mailed by the end of January every year.  Note for best results all student account data should be opened using Internet Explorer.

Purdue University Fort Wayne cannot determine if any individual student is eligible for the credit; you will need to get advice from the IRS or a tax adviser. But we have tried to help by providing factual information about fees paid as well as financial aid received on your 1098-T.
