Instructions for Downloading/Printing 1098Ts

This message is to notify you that you may have a 1098T available to download electronically. The 1098T is used to determine student eligibility for claiming the Education Tax Credits on your Federal Income Tax returns.

Northeast has contracted with MAXIMUS to provide both the electronic and paper 1098Ts. If you do not retrieve your 1098T electronically, one will be mailed to you. Paper 1098Ts will not be mailed until near January 31st and may reach you sometime after that date. If you are eligible to receive a 1098T, you can retrieve one electronically now. NOTE: In order to retrieve a 1098T electronically prior to printing you will need to consent to receiving it electronically in lieu of a mailed form. Be aware that you can get additional copies online in the future as well.

To retrieve your 1098T electronically:

  • Launch a web browser and go to https://tra.maximus.com
  • If you have registered previously with MAXIMUS TRA Services, enter your user ID and Password. Otherwise, click the “First Time Students” Button to register.
  • Enter your full First name and Last name and the last 5 digits of your Social Security Number.
  • Click Submit.
  • If records are present for you, you will be instructed to create an account. Follow the instructions on the website to create a free account and retrieve your 1098T. If records are not found for you or you have difficulty creating account, use the “Help” link in the left menu.

Remember, by acknowledging that you are receiving this form electronically, a hard copy form will not be mailed to you. However, you can go to the website as often as needed to retrieve a copy.
