Please note that Form 1098-T, Tuition Statements, should not be used to validate Form 1099-Q, Payments from Qualified Education Programs, received from a 529 plan provider. Withdrawals from a 529 plan can be used to pay for expenses, such as room and board, however, per IRS rules payments received for these charges cannot be reported in Box 1 of a 1098-T. Statements of account are typically sufficient to show that 529 withdrawals were used for educational expenses.
