Why didn't I receive a 1098-T from UCSB?
UCSB does not mail 1098-T forms. To obtain a copy, just use the Tab Service (TCS) student site.
If your 1098-T is not available, it may be due to one of the following:
- You were a visa student who did not have a valid Social Security Number (SSN) or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) on file.
IRS regulations specify that the University is not required to issue a 1098-T in this situation, unless the student requests the form.
- You participated in an international study or education abroad program.
Depending on the type of program in which you participated, a 1098-T may have been issued to you by the University of California Education Abroad Program (UCEAP), not by UCSB. However, UCEAP also uses the Tab Service (TCS) student site to issue 1098-Ts, so you may log in to access any available form.
