W-9S Form

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) requires the university to report certain information concerning your status as a student on an IRS tax statement form 1098-T. In order to properly prepare and submit the tax statement, your correct U.S. tax identification number—either a U.S. Social Security Number (SSN) or U.S. Tax Identification Number (TIN) is required. The student accounting office will contact those students for which this information is absent several weeks before the form 1098-T is produced.

Deadline to submit IRS Form W-9S: December 31, 2020
