Welcome to the Business Office
Collection of Social Security Number
A-B Tech is required to collect Social Security Number (SSN) or Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) from all degree seeking students in accordance with Internal Revenue Service (IRS) regulation §1.6050S-1(e). The IRS also requires the College to notify all degree seeking students that if they choose not to disclose their SSN or TIN, they may personally be subject to a $100 penalty imposed by Internal Revenue Service. Additional information regarding the IRS requirements may be found under IRS 1098-T Tax Forms.
Students are asked to supply a SSN or TIN to the College accurately on the admissions application and include the legal name as it appears on the Social Security Card or Taxpayer Identification.
To supply your SSN or if the SSN that the College has on file is not correct, please notify the Business Office by calling 828-398-7152.
