It depends. Usually you are not required to file your 1098-T (Tuition Statement) unless you want to claim an Education Credit. This form is for informational purposes only; however the IRS already has a copy of this on file. When you enter your 1098-T, we use this and other information to determine the educational benefits you may be eligible for on your tax return, (such as the American Opportunity Credit or the Lifetime Learning Credit). However, if your grant/scholarship amount (box 5) is more than your tuition (box 1 or box 2) you may want to report it because excess scholarship money may be treated as taxable income on your return.
NOTE: If you later decide you would like to add your 1098-T form you would have to amend your tax return.
