Tax benefits may be available for persons who pay higher education costs for themselves and members of their families. These tax benefits include the American Opportunity tax credit, and the Lifetime Learning tax credit. For more information, please visit the IRS Tax Credits for Education Information Center at http://www.irs.gov/uac/Tax-Benefits-for-Education:-Information-Center.
The University is required to report certain information concerning your status as a student to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) on a tax statement known as a Form 1098-T, Tuition Statement. In order to properly issue your tax statement, a valid Social Security Number (SSN) or Tax Identification Number (TIN) must be provided. This information will be used only for IRS reporting purposes and will not be used as an identifier on your student record. We encourage all students to verify that their University record contains a valid SSN or TIN. Enrollment Services will contact students for whom we need this information via email each year. The email will request that you complete Form W-9S.
Please print, complete, and return the form in person or by mail to:
University of Rhode Island
6 Rhody Ram Way
Kingston, RI 02881
If you are considered a non-resident alien, you are generally not eligible for education tax credits, although there are some exceptions. If you feel you are eligible, please provide your SSN or TIN on Form W-9S.
