 This is a user to user forum. You can very probably get help from this forum by asking a specific question. 

 

Form 4852 is only used if you didn't get a W-2 (and should have). It's not optional.

Likewise claiming dependents is somewhat  not optional.  You may opt not to claim a dependent, but if they qualify as a dependent, they cannot claim themselves. 

 

If your income is too high to claim a tuition credit, there is a tricky option to allow the student to claim it, but not the refundable portion of the credit.  He still cannot claim himself.
