WPI offers the Federal Form 1098-T electronically (paperless) for eligible students. To opt-out of the paperless 1098-T, please provide this request in writing to the Bursar's Office. All 1098-T forms are emailed by the IRS deadline each January.

WPI reports total payments by calendar year, not semester, per the IRS regulations. If you do not receive a form and request one you must provide your SSN/ITIN in order for us to create a form for you.

You are required by U.S. Code 26 § 6109 to furnish your SSN/ITIN so it may be included on an information return (1098-T). If you fail to furnish your correct SSN or ITIN to WPI, you are subject to a penalty of $50.00 by the IRS. (See 26 U.S. Code § 6723 for more information on failure to comply).

If you have not submitted your SSN/ITIN, please print a form W-9S to submit your Social Security Number (SSN) or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN). Please remit to the Bursar's Office. Due to sensitive information, this form may not be emailed.

Students who wish to opt-out of electronic 1098-T processing need to provide this request in writing to the Bursar's Office.

Employees of the Bursar’s Office are not able to assist in questions related to your specific eligibility and/or use of the form. We will only answer questions regarding what has been reported on the form.
