Tax Forms

Tax Time!The 1098-T tax form is issued to all Hostos students who made payments out of pocket towards tuition and fees from January 1st - December 31st of each calendar year and the financial aid disbursed is NOT more than the total applied charges for the calendar year. Forms are mailed by the CUNY 1098-T vendor on January 31st of each year for the prior calendar year (for example, 2017 forms will be mailed on January 31, 2018).

Please be aware that receipt of a 1098-T form does NOT automatically qualify you to receive educational tax credits. The determination of eligibility is the responsibility of the taxpayer. The College does not give advice on tax filing, merely provides/confirms payment and charge activity for the calendar period.

Degree Students

The 1098-T form reflects the out of pocket payments made towards tuition for the specific calendar year. Please note that if the total financial aid applied to your account during the calendar year is more than the total charges, you will NOT be eligible to receive a 1098-T form for that year.

If your Social Security number is not on your CUNYfirst account, please complete the W-9 form and bring to the Registrar’s office in order for your account to be updated.
