Electronic 1098-T Consent

As allowed by Federal regulation, Guilford Technical Community College (GTCC) offers those eligible to receive IRS Form 1098-T the option to receive the form in an electronic format instead of through the mail. In order to exercise this option, eligible recipients must provide consent to receive the form in an electronic format. Eligible recipients will only include those students that have provided a valid social security number for their file and have had reportable financial transactions* during the tax year. GTCC students may elect to view and print their 1098-T through Titan Live/WebAdvisor rather than wait for it to come by mail. If you consent to receive the form electronically, the IRS 1098-T will be displayed each year so that you can complete your tax return without waiting for a mailed document. The form will generally be available to you earlier electronically than it will be if mailed to you.

You must provide consent no later than January 15th for it to be effective for the tax year just ended. If you choose not to consent to receive the statement electronically, a paper copy of the 1098-T will be mailed no later than January 31st to your address on file via US mail.

To receive your 1098-T electronically, go to WebAdvisor and click on "1098-T Consent" under your Financial Profile. You must select the box signifying that you have read and understand these disclosures and are electing to receive your 1098-T in an electronic format. Click "Submit" to consent to view and print your IRS Form 1098-T online.  No further action is necessary. Clicking cancel will return you to the menu.

Once consent is provided, GTCC will not be mailing Form 1098-T to your home. You will receive an email to your Titan Live account notifying you when your form is available for viewing online. This consent will be implied for all 1098-T forms current and future.

Updating Mailing Address
You may update your mailing address at any time by contacting Enrollment Services. Any updates must be completed by December 31st in order to ensure that the system is updated by the January 15th deadline. Please make sure your information is always up to date in order to reduce any potential delays in receiving the 1098-T tuition statement.

Withdrawal of Consent
You may withdraw consent to receive a 1098-T form electronically at any time prior to January 12th. There are several methods for withdrawing consent. You can return to the same website where you consent and elect to revoke your consent. Optionally, you can email the request to 1098T@gtcc.edu or you can mail your request to:

Guilford Technical Community College
Attn: 1098-T's
P.O. Box 309
Drawer R
Jamestown, NC 27282

A withdrawal of consent does not apply to a statement that was furnished electronically prior to the receipt of the withdrawal or after the deadline for the consent for the tax year.

Request for Paper Statement
An advantage of the electronic 1098-T is that it is available for you to print at your convenience. However, if you consented to receive the 1098-T form in an electronic format and you subsequently want to request a paper copy, email the request to 1098T@gtcc.edu. This request may take 7-10 business days to complete.

Availability of Electronic 1098-T Statements
Electronic 1098-T tuition statements will be available (at a minimum) until December 31st of the following tax year. For example, the 2010 statement will be available until December 31, 2011.

Viewing Your Electronic 1098-T Statements
You will need Adobe`s free Reader program in order to open and print a copy of the statement. *Reportable Financial Transactions - Registration charges billed and not covered by a sponsor are considered reportable. The charges must have been billed during the tax year being reported.
