UW Green Bay 1098T Forms
The University of Wisconsin System has contracted with a 3rd party vendor, UAS, to provide the 1098T tax document through a website www.getmydocument.com . The 1098T contains important tax information regarding qualified tuition and related educational expenses which may be needed to complete your tax return. UW-Green Bay reports amounts billed in Box 2 of the form. The amount shown in Box 2 may represent an amount other than the amount actually paid during the tax year. Your 2016 1098T will contain charges (less waivers) and scholarships/grants applied to your student account between January 1, 2016 and December 31, 2016. Keep in mind that spring 2016 charges were applied to your student account in December 2015 and were included on last year’s 1098T. Only activity applied during 2016 will appear on your 2016 1098T.
UAS will send several reminder emails during the month of January. These emails will come to your campus email address from firstname.lastname@example.org and will contain a link to the “Get My Document” website. Click on the link in the email to view and print your 2016 1098T document. Clicking on the link in the email will bring you to the website and auto-fill the security certificate number. You then enter your name, last four digits of your Social Security Number, and an on-screen security code, to access your document. Be sure to enter your name as it appears in the email. You will also be able to access past year 1098T forms from this site.
If you lose the original email, log into the www.getmydocument.com site and click on the left box to "Certificate Needed". You will then be able to access any current or archived tax forms. Contact the UWGB Student Billing Office by calling (920) 465-2224 or by email at email@example.com if you have questions.
Once you log into their SECURE site you will no longer receive the emails. From this website you can view and print your 1098T. Once you view your 1098T on-line, one will not be mailed to you so you will want to print the document from the website. You can sign onto the “Get My Documents” website as often as you wish using the link from the original email. If you do not access your 1098T document on-line, it will be mailed to your home address at the end of January.
FOR HELP ACCESSING OR PRINTING YOUR 1098T ON-LINE, CONTACT UAS AT (800) 756-4311.
IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS ABOUT THE INFORMATION REPORTED ON YOUR 1098T, CONTACT THE UWGB STUDENT BILLING OFFICE AT (920) 465-2224 OR EMAIL US AT firstname.lastname@example.org.
Although the University can answer questions about the dollar amounts and check boxes on the form, do not contact us for explanations of the requirements for (or how to calculate) the allowable tuition and fees deduction or education credit. See the IRS Pub. 970, Tax Benefits for Education, or your tax preparer for that type of information.
