Is Form 1098-T a bill?
Why is San José-Evergreen CCD asking for my social security number (SSN) or individual taxpayer identification number (ITIN)?
Do I need to provide a SSN/ITIN if I am a non-resident alien student?
However, if you are a non-resident student and intend to file personal income taxes in the upcoming year you must provide your Taxpayer Identification Number in order to receive a valid Form 1098-T from the District. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) does not require SJECCD to file a Form 1098-T for foreign students who are not US residents for tax purposes. This is because non-resident alien students are not eligible for education tax benefits. However, SJECCD cannot definitively determine which foreign students are residents for tax purposes. Also, the IRS does require, SJECCD to provide a 1098-T to a non-resident alien student who requests one. For these reasons we provide 1098-T forms to all students, including foreign students who may or may not be eligible for an education tax benefit. Please refer to the IRS website or a tax professional to obtain further guidance.
