Saint Leo University
is required annually to report information to the Internal Revenue
Service (IRS) related to the tuition and eligible fees you are
billed each calendar year. Additionally, we must report on
scholarships, grants, and certain forms of tuition assistance. This
is required by the Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997. This is to alert
you and the IRS of your potential to collect on tax credits that
may be available.
Each university that is required to report does so by issuing a
1098-T form for each student with the required information related
to the reporting calendar year. Information about 1098-Ts and their
uses may be found here.
Saint Leo University issues 1098-Ts by January 31 each year. To
ensure you receive your 1098-T timely, we recommend that you submit
an electronic consent via your eLion account by January 15. The
electronic consent allows us to make the 1098-T available to you
