AOTC (American Opportunity Tax Credit)

TurboTax automatically checks for any education deductions or credits you may be eligible for. You may note, the IRS only lets you take one education credit or deduction

You may qualify for the AOTCLifetime Learning Credit (LLC), or the tuition and fees deduction. For more information about each, please see:

If you qualify for two or more education credits or deductions, the TurboTax Education Optimizer picks the one that gives you the biggest tax break.
