Tax Credits 和 the 1098-T

The Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997 和 the American Recovery 和 Reinvestment Act (ARRA) allows a tax credit to be claimed for out-of-pocket 支付 made to Loyola University 新奥尔良 for the tax year for tuition 和 certain fees. The IRS requires that we provide the 1098-T statement to you for your use in completing IRS 8863年形成. A detailed listing of charges, 支付, 奖助金, 和 scholarships is available on our website through your 罗拉 账户. We recommend that you refer to that information to assist in determining the amount of credit which may be claimed on your behalf. This information must not be construed as tax advice. The amounts 和 calculations used to determine the credit are the decision of the taxpayer after consideration of relevant IRS regulations, 8863年形成, 和, 也许, the advice of a tax consultant. Click here for more information on the IRS website.

Do we have your correct SSN 和 address?  Update it with Loyola's W-9S form.
