How do i know if i received the american opportunity or hope credit

The American Opportunity Credit (formerly the Hope Credit) provides up to $2,500 for each eligible student per year. It can be claimed for the first four years of higher education.

If you had claimed any amount of this credit in previous years, you'll see how much at the bottom of Form 8863, Page 2. 

If you used a TurboTax Online account to file a prior or current year return, you can download the return from yourTax Timeline. 

  1. Sign in and load My Tax Timeline (click image below for reference)
  2. Select the year you wish to access, then Download/Print Return (PDF)
  3. Once you've opened the PDF, scan the document until you find Form 8863. If it isn't there, you didn't claim any education credits for that tax year.
