Use Your Own Records

You should not rely solely on the supplemental information provided by UTPB. If you are taking the tuition and fee deduction or claiming one of the education credits, you should also use your own records to determine tuition paid, refunds of qualified expenses, and tax-free educational assistance. This is particularly true if an employer or other non-UTPB entity has reimbursed you for tuition paid or paid your tuition directly on your behalf. The information on the supplemental report does not reflect any refunds or reimbursements paid to you or on your behalf by third parties, but these amounts must be considered in determining eligibility for the tax credits. If you have further questions regarding your qualification for the Education Tax Credits, please obtain available information from the IRS and/or consult with a tax advisor.

You may also call (432) 552-2706 to correct information shown on the 1098-T.
