Why is my social security number missing from my 1098T?

If we do not have your social security number on file, it will not be included on your 1098T tax form.  When we do not have your social security number on file, we are required by the IRS to attempt to obtain it from you.  A W-9S form, the official IRS form used for requesting your social security number, was (will be) sent to you monthly by U.S. Postal mail and by e-mail beginning in August and each month thereafter through December.  Therefore, you may receive monthly requests from us until you complete and return the W-9S form.  If you did not respond to any of our requests, your 1098T form will not contain a social security number.

Failure to furnish correct SSN or ITIN.

If you fail to furnish your correct SSN or ITIN to the requester (GCC), you are subject to a penalty of $50.00 unless your failure is due to reasonable cause and not to willful neglect.
