Agreement - Grant 1080-T

No, you do not have to Grant Consent every year. Your selection for an electronic Form 1098-T is valid for all future tax years.

Yes. Regardless of how you receive your Form 1098-T, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) requires a complete mailing address on the tax form. CUNY cannot produce an electronic or paper Form 1098-T if there is missing or incomplete address information, such as a street, state or zip code.

You cannot withdraw this consent online. To receive your Form 1098-T at your mailing address, you must Revoke Consent of electronic Form 1098-T’s. Visit your college 1098-T Representative for information about revoking consent.

Your Form 1098-T may be accessed, downloaded, and printed on any hardware device that can open read and print Adobe PDF documents. For your convenience, the college provides students with computers on campus with the necessary hardware and software. Ensure that you have the latest update of Adobe.

Pop-Up Blockers: Turn off all pop-up blockers so the PDF form can open without difficulty.
