ITS Update: Is this Form 1098T email legitimate?

Posted: 10:00:45, Tuesday, Jan 21, 2020   Expiration: 10:00:45, Wednesday, Jan 29, 2020  

The ITS Help Desk has had several inquiries regarding an email with Subject: New Tax Document (1098T) Notification for UW-Platteville from an @cuprint.com address.

This is a legitimate email regarding your tax documents.

Per an email sent to students from Campus Updates on Friday morning, Jan. 17, this email is secure and will contain a digital signature from the University of Wisconsin System.

The email will contain a hyperlink to a secure e-Statement website and directions for logging into the website. After logging in to the e-Statement website you will be able to view and print copies of your 1098-T tax form. Even if you are not ready to use the 1098-T form, please view and print it before January 29, 2020.

Whenever you receive an unexpected message from an individual or organization, it is a good idea to go directly to the alleged source to verify whether the message is legitimate. If you still have questions about this email or the process described within it, you may contact the Cashiers Office at 608.342.1211 or cashieroff@uwplatt.edu.

It is always better to be safe than sorry!  As always, the ITS Help Desk welcomes your inquiries and is happy to help at 608.342.1400 or helpdesk@uwplatt.edu.
