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).
Students who wish to opt-out of electronic 1098-T processing need to provide this request in writing to the Bursar's Office.
The Bursar Office staff cannot assist in questions related to your specific eligibility and/or use of the form. We can only answer questions regarding what has been reported on the form.
