Hope & Lifetime Credit

The Hope and Lifetime Learning Tax Credit took effect in 1998 to help families reduce their out-of-pocket expenses for tuition and certain other expenses paid to institutions. You can take the credits if you qualify based on IRS guidelines.

If you feel that you might be eligible for these credits or need more information, please obtain IRS Publication 970 and IRS Form 8863, and review these forms carefully. To obtain copies of these forms, please call 1-800-TAX-FORM, or visit the IRS website.

If you need a copy of the fees you paid Triton for the prior calendar year, please go to the student portal, and follow the instructions listed there. If you need further assistance, please call the Triton contact number printed on the IRS Form 1098-T that you already should have received in the mail.

Nothing contained in this informational message or printed on the 1098-T should be construed as a guarantee or promise that you are eligible for or will receive the Hope and Lifetime Learning Tax Credit. The above information is not intended to provide instructions on how to obtain the tax credits. We recommend that you receive assistance from a competent tax professional.
