Tax Forms – 1098-T 

Tax forms with your 2014 tuition tax information are now available. Students enrolled at UW Oshkosh anytime during 2014 should have received an email from 1098@eforms.uwsa.edu in mid-to-late January. This is a VALID email, it is not someone trying to steal your identity.  

The email is a notification that your 1098-T form (tuition tax information) is available. For more information about the 1098-T document, visit this informative website or contact Student Accounts at sa@uwosh.edu. The 1098-T tax form contains important tax information related to tuition and other information for the calendar year 2014 which may be needed to complete your 2014 tax return and obtain Federal and State tax benefits.
