Why is “box 7” checked off on my 1098-T?

Modified on Thu, Mar 30, 2023 at 10:41 AM

Box 7 on form 1098-T indicates that the amount in Box 1 includes amounts paid during the tax year for an academic period that takes place in the next calendar year.  If this box is checked, you may be eligible to claim a tax credit in either year.  You should consult a licensed tax preparer for specific information about your potential eligibility.
