Just because my college institution provided me with a 1098-T do I have to use it when filing taxes?

Im not interested in brakes for school expenses, just a return that relate to income

No, you are not required to file for the education credits.  Keep a copy of the 1098-T with your tax records in case you change your mind- you can amend within 3 years to claim.
