Student Account Statements Available Online
Student billing information is now accessible through a secure VitNet account. Students should use their username and password to log in and then click "My Account Statement" under the Financial Information section of the Student Menu: Vitnet. Upon request, the business office can provide a paper copy of a student's billing statement for his/her records. The student must make this request by contacting the business office by phone, 608-796-3850, or firstname.lastname@example.org, or in person, and arrangements can be made for the statement to be provided via mail, fax, or email if not picked up at the business office. Vitnet accounts remain active for 18 months after the last semester that students attend classes.
Important Information Concerning IRS Form 1098-T
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has changed the requirements that colleges and universities must follow for reporting billing and payment information on IRS Form 1098-T. The new regulations beginning for the 2018 tax year, which runs from January 1, 2018 to December 31, 2018, will require only the qualified tuition and related expenses paid during the calendar year to be reported on Form 1098-T. As a result of these new regulations, please be advised that making payments in a current calendar year for charges in an upcoming calendar year (i.e. paying Spring 2018 tuition and related expenses during the 2017 calendar year) may have an impact on your tax credit opportunities for the 2018 tax year. Viterbo University suggests you refer any questions to a tax consultant to understand how these regulations affect your specific situation.
Viterbo University is required to have the 2017 IRS Form 1098-T available by January 31, 2018. The 2017 1098-T will be the final time in which qualified tuition and related expenses billed during the 2017 calendar year are reported by Viterbo University on the form. Those students that have consented to receive the form electronically through VitNet will receive an email from the university once their 1098-T is processed and available next month. The 1098-T is one of many tools used to assist students and their families in determining if they are eligible for an education tax credit. Please contact your tax consultant or review https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/i1098et_17.pdf for more information.
