Northern Illinois University is required by the Internal Revenue Service to provide every student with a 1098-T tuition statement. These forms are issued to students in late January of each year. The 1098-T provides the student/parent with information regarding qualified tuition and related expenses that will assist with individual tax preparation. We recommend consulting a trained tax professional to assist with any questions regarding eligibility or filing for any tax credits.
For additional information regarding tax credits, view the Internal Revenue Service website. For questions relating specifically to information provided by NIU on your 1098-T tuition statement, you may contact the NIU Office of the Bursar.
Please note, however, this office CANNOT provide any tax advice.
