The I.R.S. requires colleges and universities to collect social security numbers or individual taxpayer numbers (ITIN) for all students with qualified tuition charges. We will never ask you to supply your number by email. Instead, we ask that you complete form W9-S and submit the completed form to Naropa's Registrar's Office.
Please note that if we do not have your SSN on file by 12/31/13 , your form will be filed without it, and, you may be subject to a fine by the IRS or the missing information may result in delays in filing your taxes. Requests to correct the number after the fact can take several weeks to complete. If your 1098-T has been submitted to the I.R.S. with no SSN or ITIN, or with an incorrect SSN or ITIN, please submit your W-9S to the Office of the Registrar as soon as possible and inform them of this so that your 1098-T can be corrected if necessary.
If you refuse to provide your SSN or ITIN, or you provide an incorrect number, the I.R.S. is empowered to impose penalties.
Please consult IRS Publication 970 for the year in which you are filing for more information on Educational Tax Credits for which you may be eligible. No Naropa employee may give tax advice. If you are unsure about your eligibility, please consult with a qualified tax preparer.
