Yes, you can file your tax return without the 1098-T information.  

However, it may not be in your best interests to do so.  Entering in the 1098-T data will enable you to find out if you for other education credits to which you are entitled.  If you qualify for these credits, it could positively impact your tax return and refund.  

The best course of action is to wait until all of your tax forms are ready and then file your tax return then.  You can get started with your TurboTax interview today and then choose to “Save and Sign Out”.  When your 1098-T is ready, you can sign back into your TurboTax account and finish and e-file your tax return.

You have the option to do that, but I would not recommend it.

You run the risk of filing an incomplete or inaccurate tax return.
