- 1098T update: be aware of important IRS-mandated change to 1098T reporting. In the past the IRS mandated that all schools report total qualifying charges in Box 2. Beginning in tax year 2018, the 1098T will not report these qualifying charges but will report all payments made towards these qualifying charges in Box 1 as mandated by the IRS. Box 2 will be empty, per the IRS.
