If I took continuing education courses from a college that doesn’t send out a Form 1098-T, how can I deduct continuing education tax credit for the tuition, expenses and fees that I paid out of pocket?
You generally do have to receive a Form 1098-T to claim a continuing education tax credit or deduct your tuition expenses. However, you may claim the credit without Form 1098-T if you have some kind of documentation to prove the expense and you requested a 1098-T. The school must also be an eligible educational institution and must participate in the Federal Student Aid Program.
If you don’t have documents that show how much you paid, contact your school. The school must tell you the amount of your education expenses and then you will be able to accurately claim the education tax benefit for your continuing education.
