IRS Form 1098-T Information

Each year, in January, the Appalachian State University Office of Student Accounts submits an IRS Form 1098(T) to the IRS as well as to each student who had reportable data for the 1098(T) for the prior year.  The student is either sent a copy of the 1098(T) to the student's address via USPS or if the student opts-in to receive an online copy, it may be obtained via the the Touchnet Billing and Payment Portal accessible through the student's Appalnet login or for authorized users via the Authorized User login page. For tax year 2023 a form 1098(T) will be sent as sent either via US Postal Service and/or email notification by January 31, 2024.  An online version will be available via the Touchnet Billing and Payment Center log in for those who opt in.
