The IRS Thinks I Owe Them $2000

GREAT. This is just awesome. According to a letter I received from the IRS while I was away this summer, "your eligible educational institution did not verify the amount claimed on your tax return, in ox 1 of Form(s) 1098-T, Tuitions Statement. Please provide a signed explanation of the amounts paid to support the amount claimed." As a result they want back the $2000 educational credit that I received for 2012.

I have a record of the approximately $28,000 I paid in tuition to school that year, but no 1098-T. Do you guys think that the IRS will accept the statement of payments from my school's ebilling system as proof of tuition? This is very stressful since I absolutely do not have $2000.
