What We Do

Your One-Stop Shop for 1098-T Processing, Reporting and Support

Are You Ready for the Upcoming Tax Season?

For many schools, 1098-T reporting is a labor-intensive process. Why? Not only must schools consolidate tax data from multiple systems, but IRS requirements for 1098-T reporting change every year. That’s why you need a professional partner like TSC1098-T on your side — one who reduces your administrative load while increasing your organization’s cost efficiency.

We provide the necessary tools to meet the ever-changing IRS reporting requirements. We distribute — via hard or electronic copies — well-organized financial information to tax payers (students and parents) that they use to maximize their tax credits and deductions. And we help you get through the entire 1098-T process with ease!

Developed with the end user in mind, the TSC1098-T system provides a complete web-based solution for 1098-T compliance. Easy setup and administration, powerful search functions and built in e-filing are just a few of the reasons to choose our solution.

Printing and Mailing

We offer a quick, easy way to get your 1098-T forms printed and out the door every tax season. We operate a high-volume print and mail facility in Chicago, IL that services educational institutions across the country. Our production laser printing and high-speed pressure sealing technologies ensure that our print and mail services provide a dependable, easy option for delivering your 1098-T forms to students.

From your submitted tax data file, TSC1098-T generates a mail-run proof, which you can easily review and approve online via your browser. After approval, we print the proof using pressure seal forms that reduce costs while protecting sensitive information such as students’ SSNs.

Once printed, we mail the 1098-T forms in a timely manner. We presort your forms and take advantage of all applicable postal discounts to ensure the lowest possible costs for your institution.


As an approved e-file provider with the IRS, we offer complete 1098-T e-filing to the Internal Revenue Service. Our web-based e-filing software meets all outlined specifications for this process, and its built-in features and rules ensure that our 1098-T data is e-filed correctly the first time.

TSC1098-T is an SSAE16 audited organization. This means that we store your data securely and minimize its risk of exposure. By being SSAE16/SOC2 compliant, our company has established approved processes and security practices to ensure only authorized access and secure transfers of 1098-T data.

When you partner with us, you benefit from our expert knowledge in IRS file specifications and an easy-to-use process based on automated workflows. You can rest assured that we get it right, but in the unlikely event that a problem arises with the initial filing, we work with IRS representatives to correct and refile without incurring costly IRS penalties.

  • You get an initial e-filing plus unlimited e-filing additions/corrections.
  • We work with you to meet all timelines and filing deadlines.
  • We maintain a historical archive of seven years for your protection.

Electronic Presentment

Distributing your 1098-T forms online in lieu of printing and mailing is an uncomplicated and environmentally conscious solution. Electronic presentment is more cost-effective; it is more efficient because your staff can make updates in real time; and we all benefit by reducing paper use. We provide secure, encrypted hosting of your data, and you can choose to make our optional technical support hotline available to your students.

Call Center Support

TSC1098-T offers expert technical support from our Chicago office. If you want to eliminate the annual influx of calls from students experiencing login troubles — and the headaches that go along with these calls — then let our call center professionals deal with this issue. It’s what they do best!

Single Sign-on/API

With a single sign-on and one less password to remember, students find it simple to access their current and prior-year 1098-T forms online. Security is improved as your school’s authentication criteria is now the standard for accessing the 1098-T. You can generate PDF forms on the student information system without students having to leave your school’s web domain. Plus, and maybe best of all, a single sign-on/API system decreases technical support calls to deal with account access issues. Let TSC1098-T customize a solution to your school’s unique wants and needs.
