Weber State Students may elect to view and print their IRS 1098T though eWeber rather than wait for it to come by mail. When you select "Yes", the IRS 1098T will be displayed at the end of January each year so you don't have to wait for it to arrive to complete your tax return. The information on the 1098T is only informational. You MUST rely on your receipts to determine the amount paid out-of-pocket for the tax credit.
Students that select "No", should expect their form to be mailed the last week of January 2012.
