My job paid for me to go to school, do I still need to get a 1098-T form to file on my taxes?

No, if your employer paid the expenses you can’t use any of the tax-free education expenses as the basis for any other deduction or credit, including the lifetime learning credit so you do not want to enter the 1098-T (you may not even get one)
