Current federal tax regulations require the college to report your Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN), with other registration-related information, to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) on form 1098-T for each year that you are enrolled. Your TIN may be a Social Security Number (SSN), or an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) if you are not eligible for a SSN. To avoid penalties from the IRS, students should provide SSN’s or TINs to Westminster College so that it may be included on the form 1098-T.
If your SSN/ITIN is not registered with the college, you must submit your SSN or ITIN to Westminster College, in person at the Admissions Office. Your SSN/ITIN must be on file with the College prior to December 31 in order to have it reported on your form for that tax year
