Can I claim tuition deduction?

25 year old full time student living with my parents.  My1098-T lists $12895 in payments for tuition in 2018.  I also work with a 1099 of about 30k in 2018.  Can I claim the education deduction and if so where would I enter that amount in my return?  Thanks.

Can I claim tuition deduction?

Yes, you can claim the 1098-T, however it is not a tuition and fees deduction, it would be an American Opportunity Credit or Lifetime Learning Credit, depending on which one you are eligible for based on your answers in TurboTax. 

You will enter this by click on Federal>>Deductions and Credits>>Show More next to Education>>Start next to 1098-T
