Our Best Answer: How does my tuition affect my personal income tax?

Tuition & Personal Income Tax

College tuition fees may be claimed as a credit on your personal income tax return. The 1098-T form, also referred to as the "Tuition Payment Statement," is mailed to you, the taxpayer, or you can see how to access your 1098-T from your CUNYfirst account to help you determine if you are eligible to claim tax credits such as the Hope Scholarship Tax Credit or the Lifetime Learning Tax Credit for educational expenses.

For more tax information, please consult IRS Publication 970: Tax Benefits for Education.
