I got laid off from my teaching position. I was required to extend my certification by taking courses (from NYS colleges) to qualify for a new position and improving my job skills. I took all 3 courses at once during the summer. Yet I get "There were no net qualified education expenses" from turbotax. Why?
Be sure to enter the education expenses in the "education" section using your 1098-T.
Click Federal, Deductions & Credits, scroll down to "Education"
It cannot be deducted as a job expense since those deductions have been eliminated for the federal return this year.
You must have a tax liability to apply the credit to on your return.
