Tuition was charged in 2016, scholarship dispensed in 2017 - 1098T makes it look like scholarship was income
I graduated in May 2017; my tuition for the spring semester was about $8k and I had a $4.5k scholarship.
The problem is, apparently I was charged the tuition bill in November 2016, even though the bill was due (and I couldn't pay it) until spring 2017, which is the same time my scholarship was dispensed. So my 1098-T form makes it look like tuition was $0 and I got a $4500 scholarship. Since the scholarship was higher than the tuition bill, it counts as income that I haven't paid any taxes on.
Is there anything I can do about this?
