I'm guessing because box 2 technically doesn't exist in 2018, even though some colleges may still be putting amounts in there.

ex-AllStar, ex-Lutefisk taste taster, ex-ACME product tester
and ex marks the spot where those rocks and anvils hit me.

According to the 1908-T instructions it is "Reserved"

Yeah, this will be an interesting year.  There seems to be widespread use of invalid 1098-T forms with box 2 numbers.
