To enter your Form 1098-T information (even when TurboTax thinks it has already been entered and is showing $0), go through the entire education expenses section of your return until you reach the screen titled “Your Education Expenses Summary”, then follow these steps:
- Click Edit next to the student name. On the screen titled “Here’s your Education Summary”, click Edit beside Tuition. Enter the information from your Form 1098-T.
To go directly to the Education section of your return, use these steps:
- On the top row of the TurboTax online screen, click on Search (or for CD/downloaded TurboTax locate the search box in the upper right corner) This opens a box where you can type in “education” (be sure to enter exactly as shown here) and click the magnifying glass (or for CD/downloaded TurboTax, click Find) The search results will give you an option to “Jump to education” Click on the blue “Jump to education” link
You can edit your tuition amounts only from the Education Summary Page by editing the school information; try these steps:
When you are signed into your tax return, you can type 1098-t into the search bar at the top of the screen, hit enter, then click on the Jump to 1098-t link to get back to the education section in TurboTax. You will be taken to the education section but the exact screen you will land on depends on where you left off. Click through the screens until you get to the Expenses Summary, which will list all students on your return. From here you can add another student.
In order to change the tuition amounts, you will need to click on Edit, next to the name of the student on the screen titled Your Education Expenses Summary.
That will take you to a screen titled Here's Your Education Summary. From this screen, you can edit the tuition amounts by clicking on Edit next to the name of the school.
